Client Rating for South Africa 5/5 from 74 reviews

Stunning position, gorgeous villas with private deck and plunge pool looking out over the bush, wild animals meandering past.......what's not to like?? All the staff were brilliant but we must mention a few by name, Sam the restaurant manager and Admire, Chris and Neville, waiters, couldn't do enough. Staff were always waiting with cold towels and cocktails when we returned from our game drives. The chefs are also wonderful and we ate three delicious meals every day we were there, two evenings eating in the atmospheric 'boma'. And we daren't walk back to our lodge alone in the dark without getting in to trouble from the charming Mandela!
