Amazing South African adventure
Our stay at this beautiful lodge was everything we had hoped for. Our accommodation in villas 31 was absolutely amazing, the service and food were incredible and our safari guide Sean was awesome! We had some great sightings of the animals in the park on every drive he took us on! I would 100% recommend this lodge to anyone wanting an amazing South African adventure!!
