    Absolute AMAZING. From start to finish the experience was excellent - I was staying with family in Camps Bay and they picked me up from my doorstep. The game reserve staff were friendly and informative. We saw so many wonderful animals and had lots of time to stop and look at them and take photos. The lunch was delicious as well. 10/10

    It was more like a big zoo. Lions were in a semi big electric-fence-area. Saw all the big 5 except a leopard. Staff was very friendly. Mostly older people and families attended. Was a bit concerned the day before because the company didnt provide further information like get your guide suggested.
