Shamwari Long Lee Manor is outstanding! Excellent service in all respects. The highlight of our holiday, despite some rainy days.

A superb experience! Even though there was no swimming pool, there was no much time to enjoy the facilities because of the two safaris a day.

Our safari driver was excellent and really looked after us. All the staff at Woodbury Lodge were very kind and helpful.

Ants Hill Waterberg has the best personal service, a home from home with superb meals.

Amakhala Game Reserve is a very special place to stay. Mnoni (our guide) was outstanding, very knowledgeable, great company & above all and excellent tracker to ensure we saw all the animals.

Very well done, colonial style lodge & well thought out. Unfortunately, a little quiet, not many staying, not much atmosphere. Good and close to Elephant Park for game viewing. Guides available.

Perfect for a night prior to Addo Park visit. Excursion excellent.

We stayed at Leeuwenbosch (Amakhala Game Reserve) and although they were quite the opposite (fully-booked), we really felt welcome and cared for. We couldn't have stayed any more than the 3 days as we would have exploded due to all the food and drink, and the owner (Bill) is an absolute character. The game drives were excellent and, in retrospect, the only thing we would have done differently would be to not opt for the Tusker package as it was a long slog to see some elephants (and lots of warthogs), and we saw lots of lovely elephants at Amakhala anyway...

We had a wonderful time on honeymoon thank you. L, and I both agreed that the Safari at Buffalo Ridge Safari Lodge was the highlight of the trip. We had a lovely time there and did not want to come away. It was an amazing experience, and one that we will not forget.

The people at Buffalo Ridge were really warm and friendly and it was really interesting to chat to them about the game reserve, lodge, life and of course the animals. The lodge itself was lovely and they made really nice effort to make things special for us on our honeymoon by decorating our lodge with candles and petals and providing us with a bottle of wine on our last night.

And of course being on safari and being so close to the animals was a fantastic thing, especially on our last drive when we were tracking a female lioness hunting warthogs, then catching a glimpse ... of a leopard in the bush.

So thank you once again for all your help. Hopefully we will get opportunity to do another safari at some point and when we do I will let you know. :-)
