Guest feedback

“We have just returned to the UK and would like to say that our recent stay at your lodge proved to be one of the highlights of our trip to South Africa. The weekend, and, in particular, the Battlefields tours, was one of the most memorable moments of our lives! The commentary was first class, the battles came to life before our eyes, and what can we say about the horse ride! We would thoroughly recommend the experience to anyone.”
