We did not quite know what to expect, but we really enjoyed the entire period spent on the reserve, the bungalow in which we stayed with all the trimmings, where the Impalas and monkeys just pass by, spacious living room with kitchen and two large bedrooms, our guide has done her best every day to show us the animals in the reserve, but that was not entirely successful, the reserve is so large and you cannot get everywhere with the car, we have very close to buffalos, giraffes, impalas, elephants, wildebeest, warthogs, rhinos and many beautiful birds seen, but unfortunately no cats, except those in the special cat park at the start of the safari, which was very nice because you are also with the animals in the cages are allowed to pet and with them on the photo, the last day we went to St Lucia for a boat trip on the river where we saw the hippos and crocodiles, our guide was fantastic.
What a wonderful way to experience KZN's oldest game reserve. We did the full day safari with started punctually with a 5am pick up from our BNB and included a healthy breakfast and braai for lunch. The guide, John was exceptionally knowledgeable and by lunchtime we had seen a large number of rhino, elephant, lion and buffalo as well as kudu, impala, giraffe, zebra and warthog.
This was a great experience both on land and in the ocean. Sakhile was an amazing, friendly, funny, and very knowledgeable guide. I highly recommend this experience.
