                                          We stayed in the tents and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. Everything is so well equipped and you feel so close to nature. We so enjoyed that it was safe to walk around.We will definitely be back.

                                          Only a half hour out of town and you feel like you a million miles away.

                                          We absolutely loved our stay at Horseshoe Game Reserve! Having not been there before, we were not sure what to expect, but we were VERY pleasantly surprized.Spotlessly clean, super comfy beds, and high quality finishes throughout.If I have to think of a negative, its that we did get a bit lost in finding the place - more signage would be very beneficial.
