Client Rating for South Africa 5/5 from 74 reviews

Whilst this was the largest of the lodges we stayed in the food was excellent and the staff very helpful and friendly. This was well place for exploring the Northern end of the park. We went on one morning game drive and were lucky to see a pack of Wild Dogs with their puppies.
