      I had the best stay ever! The ranger went out of his way to find the animals in the park. I would recommend this to everybody and definitely coming back again.

      We enjoyed our stay happily. We could see all of big 5 along with many other animals in the park. The stay was simple and clean. The owner and staff were very polite and helpful. Food was pretty delicious. I would recommend this place to all.

      The site is very sparse - right up against the Electric fence of the Manyane camp. Entire camp riddled with small thorns that clung to everything.The communal ablutions in the caravan park were too small (1 shower, two toilets) and were not kept clean. The dinner was sub standard. Cold dry chicken breast. Cold potatoes, margarine, green salad and beetroot. Not what you would expect for the price. We did not participate on the game drives so can only comment on the food and facilities.

      The place was exactly what we wanted. The beds was comfortable, it was clean and nicely equipped. The accommodation was very good. It was my wedding anniversary and it was such a relaxing breakaway. We are going back soon and already have recommended the place to friends and family.
