The safari and stay at Savanna Lodge exceeded our expectations in every way – we cannot recommend highly enough. We had a wonderful holiday in South Africa and plan to return!
We loved Notten’s Bush Camp and it suited us perfectly. Lovely pool and friendly attentive staff. They were so helpful with our wheelchair and getting us out onto game drives. We saw wild dogs twice (sleeping and hunting), leopards (including a female carrying her cub), a cheetah with kill, as well as numerous other game. Our guide was a little too focussed on always seeing the Big Five but that is what most people want. The food at Nottens was excellent and plentiful, and our room was clean and comfortable.
Inken Sharpwinkel’s advice and help was invaluable and she went to a great deal of trouble to organise our transfers and airline seats/wheelchair due to my husband’s Parkinsons. Thank you!
Thank you for all your help with planning the trip of a lifetime! Really great and efficient, very smooth transfers, and no stress with anything! We had a great time! We enjoyed everything and your assistance made everything run smoothly and stress-free!
Amazing location, very luxurious lodges, lots of viewing of animals! Saw all Big Five.
Superb – exceeded out expectations. Drivers wonderful and saw many more animals than expected (and closer than expected).
Such a brilliant place, amazing service and equisite food.
Excellent service within comfortable surroundings
Cheetah Plains is a fantastic place with excellent service and meals, with great facilities all within a superbly comfortable setting.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Cheetah Plains made us feel special for our honeymoon with a candlelit dinner for two.
Beautiful location, [with] very good, friendly service, [and] excellent food at Rissington Inn.
An outstanding safari experience. We have been recommending it enthusiastically ever since!
After travel delays we arrived very late in the evening at Jatinga Country Lodge- no problem at all to the wonderful staff. Sandwiches, fries and a pot of tea appeared within minutes. To recuperate between activities we spent one whole day walking the grounds or sitting and soaking up the views, while the staff were most attentive.
Rissington Inn is a good location for exploring Blyde River Canyon. Provision for packed breakfast and lunch was very good. Garden suite prefect room for a start to our honeymoon.
Everything was excellent at Cheetah Plains. New investments, for example safari vehicle and bathroom appreciated
Top marks at Umlani Bushcamp for service, meals and location.
Overall excellent stay. Amazing place and great value for money.
Fantastic! Our second stay here and hopefully not our last.
The staff friendliness & general atmosphere as well as the service & quality of meals were outstanding.
Excellent service. Perfect location and fantastic ranger. Notten’s really is a wonderful place.
Loved it! Wonderful experience at Notten's Bush Camp. Wonderful game viewing – saw all the Big Five! Service, food, hospitality excellent! Would have preferred a little more luxury in room but still good. Perfect end to our holiday. Atmosphere at camp in evening memorable! Thanks so much, Rainbow Tours – good job! Amazing holiday. Loved South Africa. Would love to go back one day.
Guides at Arathusa Safari Lodge were amazing - totally professional and friendly. Their knowledge was boundless about the animals, plants, trees and terrain, and star constellations in Andre’s case. Overall excellent.
Completely idyllic - loved every moment. Food service was outstanding, location beautiful and tents rustic but luxurious
