The welcome area with snacks & beverages was okay. It would've been better if the woman sitting in the room was friendlier or in the least bit helpful. Also, we decided to go in the line we saw forming outside and others followed us. We were waiting for someone to let us know where we were heading next. Anyway, they rest of the experience was wonderful. Our guide was knowledgeable & entertaining. We got to see everything but the leopard (that one was a long shot anyway). We really enjoyed the lions and how close they were to us. The break area was nice but the restroom area was awful.

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.

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.

Very great safari, great guide, everything worked perfectly.
