Professional check-in with a welcome drink. Nice ambience and very clean. The tour even started a little earlier because of the weather conditions. Our guide had a lot of interesting information for us and spoke a super understandable English. Except for leopards, we were able to see all the "big five" and many other animals as well. While the environment is not entirely species-appropriate for some animals, they appear to be doing well and we loved being able to offer something like this in this corner of South Africa.

We had a great Safari with our guide Mario! We saw a lot of animals. The Lions have their own little land kept seperate from the other animals. First I thought that was weird for a Safari but when you are told why that is, you understand big time. It’s a great experience for children also. The lodge is also beautiful the cabins look nice and the pool is also great. Lunch was crowded but buffet was fine. Very nice staff all over.

Great for a day trip from Cape Town - a 2 hour drive out to a very well run, small (in comparison to other parks) Game Park. This is perfect for anyone new to Safaris, for anyone short on time, for families, couples and friends. It was our first time to South Africa so we enjoyed this thoroughly, got some great photos and felt like the 2 hour trip around the park was well worth the price and the time.

Great trip for a very good price. Before the Safari there is even a huge food buffet inclusive and during the safari you get free drinks. Really great experience, thank you!

Better than expected, took the evening event but should have stayed over instead of driving home to Cape Town in the dark. Very nice facilities.
