We had a wonderful stay. A beautiful lodge! Enjoyed the peace and quiet. Was surprised at the amount of animals we saw. The food was excellent although not a wide selection. The staff was very professional and helpful. Beautiful clean rooms.
Jay N. Couples South Africa, July 10, 2011
Stunning accommodation with beautiful surroundings

Being close to Nature and the animals roamed close to us.
8.7
Excellent accomodation, the one downside was that the accommodation was a bit of a distance from the parking. The hotel should invest in a golf cart to transport guests to their rooms. There was insufficient parking for guests.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Excellent experience for the overseas traveler, being so close to Johannesburg.
Lesley B. Couples South Africa, May 1, 2011
A feast of wiild life

friendly staff, comfortable and well appointed chalets

Having spent two nights at Askari, we came away relaxed and refreshed. A bonus for us was the exceptional amount of game we saw on the two drives we took. However, we feel that the cost of the drives should be included in the package. Game rangers are outstanding from a knowledge point of view and at interacting with holiday makers. All in all most enjoyable and we would do it again!
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Do a game drive!
