  • Visit Idube -. We probably felt all around. The game drives were impressive, the staff is very friendly and the Ranger and Tracker proficient. Perfectly located. 1 hour driving from the airport. Water hole directly at the lodge, where you can watch the animals. From the lodge no wide roads for Wildlife observation. Our Ranger Bragon and our tracker culture were a good team and we had a lot of fun with each other. The bushwalk is a must. An hour back to the lodge. Indescribable. Room and bathroom in excellent condition. Cabinet, sideboard, AC and fan available. As well, mosquito net and spray against mosquitoes. Room has been prepared for the night. A wonderfully big bed! Excellent service. Friendly, helpful. The Rangers had stood in the evening behind the BAR and have served the drinks. All were good. Have to set even after the morning game drive and an evening meal on the table, told about their adventures. We had no complaints. ;-) and us always very well kept felt. BBQ with Campfire, drink service. Food to choose from. Always freshly prepared breakfast / lunch / dinner. Quality very good. Prices for drinks are very acceptable (not inflated). Sun-downer at the evening exit in the middle of the Prairie with beautiful views of the sunset. There was a big pool, we were lucky enough to have a private pool. Otherwise our free time was to observe the animals

  • The most amazing safari experience you could ever hope for. The lodge is beautiful with animals roaming around the property all the time. The all inclusive nature means you will never get hungry and food from Kelly and kitchen staff is delicious. The staff are wonderful and service is great. The game drives were of course the highlight; Brogan and Culture are both excellent ranger and tracker combo! So knowledgeable and learnt so much. Will definitely be returning!
  • Beautiful place to spend time. Great staff. Knowledgeable guides and trackers. We saw so many leopards, lions, elephants, zebra, buffalo, giraffes, and much more. Great food and comfortable beds. Highly recommend.
