“Thank you for an “out of this world” experience – it far exceeded any expectations we had before coming. Darryn and Dion the best ranger and tracker we could have wished for – you made Lee’s life by finding the Rhinos. The lodge is absolutely beautiful – perfect in every way. All staff have been beyond friendly and we will be back very soon, we hope!”

P/S Roy and I have been to South Africa almost 14 times and we have never seen so many cats!!”
