Stayed 4 nights in October 2019

Great value with one important proviso”

We stayed in the villa as a family of 4 with two older children. The villa for size and facilities in it were as good as any in 20 years of regular safaris. The staff are lovely, really friendly and cant do enough for you. The food is good and plentiful. The wines could do with an upgrade BUT at this price point are perfectly acceptable. If you are going to choose Madikwe as a park then having stayed at other lodges in the park this is right up there at the top. Now here is the conundrum. My other family members are happy with general game viewing, i am massively interested in leopards. There was one sighting of a leopard in the four days we were here but by the time we queued to see it it was dark and it had disappeared. I didnt see my favourite animal (through no fault of our guide). I will choose other reserves in future where leopard sightings are much better however my family would be happy to stay here again.

Amazing resort, excellent service and memorable Safari experience!”

Highly recommended resort! The staff and guide service was excellent with uber personalized service from the moment you arrived until you checkout. The the hotel is located right in front of a waterhole so you get a daily dose of views of animals! Really amazing! The rooms are very well designed, spacious and cozy! Last but not the least, the daily drives are the best part and our guide (special shout out to Kevin) made our 1st game drive experience amazing!

Fantastic”

THE most memorable stay we’ve had at a hotel bar none.. We only stayed for two days but from our arrival to departure we had a constant stream of wow moments, the welcome was friendly without over bearing, a greeting drink was so refreshing.. On entering the beutifully pressented room we were greeted to a view to end views where zebra were walking past our window to the watering hole! this watering hole was to prove to be the jewel in the crown, we saw; white rhino, black rhino, elephants (single and herd) giraffe, bufalo, zebra, kudu, impala, wharthogs, camelion in thebtree by the fire pit that sits right by watering hole, i could go on and on, unbeleivable! Then there were the actual game drives that departed twice a day where we saw all the above again, and more.. ask to go to the resevoir on an evening drive if you can, stunning photo opportunities. Kevin our guide had an incredible wealth of knowledge and infrmation, easy to understand and passionate.

Superb first time safari”

We did a 3 night/day safari in February and had an amazing experience. Our room was beautifully set along a trail used by many different animals to drink at the waterhole situated infant of the main lodge throughout the day. All the meals were served around the main lodge, in different areas with different aspects, which was a lovely touch. The staff were attentive and the service excellent. Our safari guide Kevin was brilliant... and although we spent 3 days trying unsuccessfully to locate a Leopard we did see lots of amazing animals, including Cheetahs, Lions, black Rhino's and more Elephants, Zebra's and Impala's than you could ever count. He was very knowledgeable and good fun to be out on the drive with. I particular liked our 6am coffee and 7pm GandT... great touch. Many thanks to all of you for making my first safari so memorable.

The staff are very professional and the service is fantastic. Not to mention the fact that you see the big five within the first two game drives. The only complaint we had was the fact that the food was too much 😅
