Incredible time with Ruan and the rest of the crew. What we saw will never leave my mind and I am most definitely returning. Reviewed by Rick Chesney on Google

It was lovely and comfortable with high end linens and towels. We highly recommend sleeping in the outdoor accommodations one night. What an experience!  Reviewed by Leslie K on TripAdvisor

The recent renovations are simply wonderful with the additions of outdoor baths and the subtle yet classy bar area. Reviewed by Sarathedoglady on TripAdvisor

 

REVIEWS ABOUT THE GAME DRIVES AND RANGERS

Our ranger Jacob was an absolute treasure. He was brilliant, witty, patient and such gentleman. A true asset to Jocks. Our game drives were filled with the wonders of Mother Nature and Jacob educated us on the big and small. His skill and knowledge in finding and pointing out the animals made for fantastic drives.  Reviewed by Leslie K on TripAdvisor

We saw lots of game and our guide was very knowledgeable on birds, plants & animals,he was a great driver as well. He was also very good at spotting game. Observed the big 5 up close.  Reviewed by AndreViljoen on Google

Our ranger was Jan. He was extremely thoughtful and experienced. We enjoyed having him for 6 game drives over our 3 days. Game drives were about 3 hours long with a break in the middle - coffee in the morning and drinks in the afternoon. He helped us find elephants, hyenas, giraffes, rhinos, buffalo, zebras, unique birds, wild dogs, and even a leopard.  Reviewed by anaghav on TripAdvisor

Especially we want to say thank you to Ruan (our Ranger who just knows everything about the animals and nature from Krüger Nationalpark)  Reviewed by lukasfritschi92 on TripAdvisor

The game drives are wonderfully well organised and our enthusiastic, extremely knowledgable and friendly game ranger (Dave) really made it exciting and fun. We saw all of the big 5 (among many others) as well as a Cheetah attempting to catch an impala, which was the best moment of our Safari experience.  Reviewed by Ross B on TripAdvisor

The game drives, what can I say - wow, wow, wow! Were absolutely amazing we saw lots of animals including the big 5 - we were also privileged to see 3 separate packs of wild dogs (apparently a rare site) in Kruger. Micah was our guide/ ranger, he’s was brilliant, he is very skilled and knowledgable. We really enjoyed our time spent with him looking for all sorts of different animals. Thank you Micah  Reviewed by Jp6041 on TripAdvisor

 

REVIEWS ABOUT THE FOOD AND BEVERAGE EXPERIENCE

Drinks and food were great. Of our three nights, one was fine dining in the lodge, one night the entire staff arranged for a special boma/bbq in the riverbed, and one night the staff arranged for us to have a personal dinner in our room with candles - very romantic!  Reviewed by anaghav on TripAdvisor

While there we enjoyed the BOMA at the lodge, dinner off of the menu, and then a big feast at their off-site location somewhere in the veld and what an experience that was--and so beautiful to boot. Whether it be breaakfast, lunch, or dinner, the food is outstanding. Kudos to the kitchen staff!!  Reviewed by Charlene C on TripAdvisor

The food is also incredible. Dinner on white tablecloth with candles under the stars, WOW !  Reviewed by TexasTraveler810 on TripAdvisor

The food is just gorgeous, shout out to “the famous chef” as we called him, he made us laugh every dinner time, great guy! They are very passionate about the food they prepare and they take a lot of care in what they do. My favourites were the buffalo pie and the impala steaks! They have different themes for all dinners in lovely settings with a good atmosphere and have a wide variety for you to choose from. Most of the time you eat together as a group with your Ranger, which I really think adds to how great it is as you get to bond with your group and talk about your exciting game drives. You will not go hungry here they are such feeders J you get breakfast, lunch, high tea and dinner. All food and drink is top quality and all included!  Reviewed by Yassie90 on TripAdvisor

Food and beverage: Excellent. Kudos to Phil. The freshness and variety was beyond our expectations. The springbok carpaccio type appetizer still has me dreaming!  Reviewed by Leslie K on TripAdvisor
