    Mini Break

    Amazing property with friendly staff. We booked the all meals + 2 game drives per night package which didn't give us much time to relax, so it went like this, arrive around 1-30pm, lunch, go to room, freshen up, afternoon tea, 3-30pm game drive (3 hours) return to freshen up, dinner. Next morning tea n snacks at 6am, game drive at 6-30am, return at 10am, breakfast.

    This place is great.

    Staff was amazing. Game drives were great (ask to have Sean, he was top notch). The room (bungalow) was very new and clean. Food was fantastic too. Can’t say enough good things about this property.

    Verified guest review

  • 6.0.Good

    A good choice for families

    A fairly priced lodge/ Hotel in Pilansberg national park. Its certainly not the best place to stay if you want tranquility, exclusivity and emerge yourself in the African bush, like many South African lodges focus on, but then again you are not paying thousands of dollars a stay either. For larger families traveling together, this is a great choice. This is also a great choice if this is your first time on a safari. - The area is fenced in and safe. - Rooms have a nice view of the bush - Rooms are very cleaned, comfortable with large bathroom and an outdoor shower. - Staff are great - The restaurant serves a buffe. The food was pretty average. Good hotel, and a great deal

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Enjoyable stay!

    The rooms were spacious and clean- and the outdoor shower was perfect allowing you to shower privately under the stars. I was concerned that it would be too cold outside to use and therefore impractical but the water was delightfully hot and I didn’t even notice the cold. We had Ika as our guide for the game drives and he was unbelievable - we got to see all of the big 5 game during our two days. The food was delicious as well
