Deluxe Glamping in the Bush. Great hospitality.
Nice family safari in the bush. The approach from the highway to the main gate is a bit daunting as you drive through a village of shacks. This did not give us confidence we had chosen the right place to stay and almost turned around. We are so glad we did not turn around and went all the way to the lodge. It is 1 hour all the way to the lodge from the highway, so plan your timing accordingly. Lodge was decent. Wildlife roamed the property and we co-mingled with the nyalas and monkeys. Fourene was the most amazing guide! Saw elephants, white rhinos, giraffes and much more!

I'm With The Elephants
Totally misrepresented by I booked many rooms more than half bore no resemblance to description on net, for a start no plunge pool half were duplex style dark smelly and shared postage stamp balcony. The others were stand alone as booked with bath were OK I paid exactly the same money for two different so called villas. My friends with the terrible villas were in tears so a few were moved the next day as they were fully booked the first night these were the lucky ones the others just had to wallow in the sub standard accommodation. Game very few and far between. We were told that a herd of elephants broke down the fence and went to Kruger I'm with the elephants.
