We stayed at the Imbali Lodge in Kruger National Park for three nights. It was truly the experience of a lifetime. The accommodations were luxurious and private. The two daily game drives were thrilling; the ranger Mr. Twice was experienced, knowledgeable and had an uncanny ability to spot the various animals that live free in the park. He was very understanding and helped us to spot the big 5 with close-ups videos of lions and the leopard.. The service was terrific and the food was good. If you are going to Kruger this is the place you should go for your safari.
Lion Sands was beyond our expectations in everyway. We planned this trip as a once in a lifetime experience and within a day were thinking - we have to come back here. The staff was amazing in every way and made the entire stay much more enjoyable. The rooms were spacious and bedding and bathroom were great. The food was delicious and the evening meals varied in location with entertainment provided some nights. The safari guides and trackers were beyond belief in their knowledge of the animals, birds, plants, etc. with the opportunity to explore with your guides 6 to 8 hours a day. We are telling everyone what an amazing place this was and recommending it to all.
We have both been lucky enough to visit a number of game lodges and we chose this one as we had read such fantastic reviews. Well it lived up to them all and some. The staff were so friendly and efficient, nothing was too much trouble. The room was beautiful and spacious with fabulous views of the waterhole (number 8). The food was extremely good and so much of it.
The game drives were superb, both the guide and the tracker were so intent on ensuring that we saw as much as we could and were constantly explaining interesting facts relating to the animals and area. We enjoyed every minute and were very sad to leave. We would recommend this to anybody who wants a 5* experience both in the lodge and out in the bush.
Amazing experience from the first minute you get picked up from the airport to when you leave. Everyone was very attentive, friendly and accommodating. You're greeted by the manager and the whole staff. The great hall is tastefully decorated and has a view of the river bank. At anytime of the day you'll see animals visiting the area feeding on the vegetation.
The food is excellent, fresh and delicious. The morning and afternoon safari drives were exciting and fun. Morning drives are capped off by coffee, tea and treats. Afternoon drives are rewarded by drinks and snacks at sunset. We saw lots of animals and the ranger and tracker guides were very informative on animal habits and survival tactics. The whole time we felt very pampered. Each day was so unique and wonderful that we were sorry to leave Narina, Tinga.
Definitely would recommend this place to our friends and family as well as visiting again.
I had a very enjoyable experience at Jock. The rooms are a bit 'rustic' but very comfortable and the staff is friendly and helpful. While the property is fenced, the view of the riverbed is great and I was occasionally able to see animals from my room. The guides were fantastic--I was there only two days and saw the Big 5. The food was exceptional (and plentiful!).
