Incredible experience with excellent opportunity for game viewing. This is a preserve and offers the chance to get close to the animals in their own environment.

We did a morning safari and an afternoon safari over two days. Perhaps our expectations were too high but found it disappointing. Did lots of driving with very few sightings. Saw more animals at Pilanesberg in two hours than we did here in two safaris....More

We have enjoyed several south African parks and this ranks in the top few. A wonderful bushfeld with open areas and cooling forests. Wild dogs, hyenas, lions, elephants, hippos and giraffes abound. Leopard, like everywhere, is very elusive so a sighting is a big deal....More

I was very excited about going to Hwange because I read it had a more "wild" authentic feel to it vs a place like Kruger. We spent 3 days in the park, entering by Main Camp and exiting near Robins Camp. For all the hours...More

Nature is rejoicing with the first rains; animals don’t need to drink from the waterholes anymore. Bad luck for tourists! We had two drives with a very kind guide, who tried hard to show us wildlife inside the National Park, the viewing was meagre. But...More
