What can I say other than a wonderfully authentic game reserve with amazing staff and our guide Donovan was fabulous . Funny knowledgeable interesting safe and just so comfortable and attentive to all of us. He made our stay all the staff did. Just a beautiful place to feel at one with all what’s good about being on a game reserve. Not hoarders of tourists trying to see everything sometimes it seemed like just one vehicle in all that beautiful space. and not loads of trucks following each other like cattle . We had lovely story telling around the camp fire the Manager Tim joined us for dinner and shared his lifestyle of living and working in such a wonderful place. I would gladly have spent more time with them in that location truly a fab place to be. Hot chocolate at night was delicious and Poppy was a sweetheart, she could not do enough to make us feel at home. We didn’t have to wait for a barman we just helped ourselves and no one abused that privilege it felt like home. Great place

Intimate safari
We travelled here after 2 days in Camps Bay for a 3 night safari. Overall we had 6 game drives which enabled us to see 4 of the big 5! We didn’t manage to see a leapord unfortunately. We enjoyed our stay here as it worked for our next destination and we got to see plenty of animals.

We spent 2 nights at Woodbury Lodge shortly after a 4 night stay in Sabi Sands, and were really glad that we did! The lodge is nicely located on a hill, very comfortable and with great views and throughout our short visit we were continually impressed by the service and friendliness of the staff. Our first drive shortly after we arrived was super! We really wanted to see a Cheetah (didn’t find one in Sabi Sands) and with Brad our guide we managed to see one. Brad has a great knowledge about wildlife, birds and plants and we saw a lot on the 4 drives, some of which we hadn‘t seen in Sabi Sands because of the different type of vegetation. On the last drive we saw 4 lions with a kill; just super! Also, they restricted the number of cars at a game sighting to 2, and kept a respectful distance from the animals while ensuring really good viewing. Food was good and plenty (they were happy to meet special requests), and the open bar made life easy not always having to wait for a bartender. We will definitely recommend Woodbury Lodge to our friends.
