Memorable visit
This was our first Game Reserve stay and I cant imagine they get any better or more 'genuine' . No chipping of animals here. A truly enjoyable experience even if the cheetah did have the last laugh and eluded us. Craig was a wonderful Ranger. Extremely knowledgable in all aspects of the local, natural environment. A charming host and driver and so hardworking. All the Staff were approachable, friendly and generous with their time and attention. The lodges were cosy and spotless. The food was amazing providing a 'local ' feel to the whole experience and the vegetarian options were varied and plentiful. We saw elephants, giraffes, rhino, hippos, lions, water buffalo, zebra, etc etc. A professionaly managed reserve with a very personal touch.

Lalibela, Mark's Camp 4 nights
We can't say enough about the marvelous time we had. The food was beyond wonderful, game drives magnificent, hospitality could not have been better or more welcoming. Our Ranger Ruan was well educated and informative. For anyone with children they have a children's program that sets the parents free to enjoy the game drives and other times while they are entertained with their own staff. We are grandparents and had no children with us, but we were impressed about what we saw. We happen to be there for Valentines Day and things were nicely decorated for the holiday, each dinner had animal folded napkins, etc.

tolles Resort
wir waren rundum zufrieden. Die Safaris mit Jason waren toll und sehr informativ. Wir haben die "Big 5" und mehr gesehen.Das Essen war super lecker. Die Hütten sind komfortabel und gut ausgestattet, die Betten bequem. Bei unserem nächsten Aufenthalt in SA werden wir bestimmt wieder dorthin

Tree Tops Aufenthalt wunderschön
Super tolle Game Drives in Eiseskälte (Anfang November), da helfen die Decken. Noch besseer ganz warm anziehen und unbedingt Kopfbedeckung gegen Kälte und Sonne. Toller Ranger Brad. Alle Mitarbeiter sehr freundlich, zuvorkommend, aufmerksam und nett. Essen ganz ok. Zimmer (Zelt) nicht mehr ganz neu. Dusche mit leichtem Schimmel in den Ecken. Toiletten zum Zimmer hin nach oben offen. Insgesamt ein tolles Erlebnis, aber zu teuer (wie wohl die meisten Private Game Reserves). Tiere sind da. Im Addo Park z.B. laufen massig Elefanten frei rum. In Lalibela müssen sie zeitaufwendig auf der Pirsch gefunden werden.
