This lodge may not be as well-known as some others in various private reserves near Kruger but it is spectacularly serene and comfortable. The managers (husband and wife) are very hospitable, the food excellent, the ranger and tracker (Floris) (Lawrence) who drove us were unusually helpful. Come hell or high water they were going to show us the Big 5 and they did - several times. Our room was something out of a Ralph Lauren magazine spread.

The lodge is incredibly peaceful, and the rooms are large.
our ranger ( Dumay ) and tracker (Lawrence ) were
more the willing to go off road to locate the BIG 5
with great success. It was up close and personal
All our meals were first class. We just can't believe there
is a better lodge

Absolutely recommended!!
