    In the spirit of full disclosure, this was our first game reserve stay so we do not have any basis for comparison. Having said that, Gondwana delivered an unforgettable experience in a beautifully designed property that provides spacious and well appointed private huts, friendly service, excellent facilities, in a peaceful location that delivers on adventure and packs some nice surprises. Carine was fantastic welcoming us and assisting in arranging transportation and guide services even after our departure. She was very professional, efficient and inspired a sense that we were in good hands. The staff was very friendly and responsive. Flint enthusiastically escorted us to our hut and made sure we were well informed about the amenities and well provisioned as well. The dining experience was also a plus. Full of beautiful details, its decor blended traditional African themes with elegant modern touches. My wife and I had no problem finding deliciously prepared offerings in a well thought menu. Despite the dinner and lunch offerings being rather limited, the quality of the preparation and presentation more than made up for it. The game drives were done using some very comfortable vehicles and the guides were knowledgeable and we felt that they knew what they were doing and we felt safe at all times. Ebenezer took good care of us. What put the icing on the cake was in our departure morning my wife was visited by a group of zebras that decided to stop by our hut and bid her safe travels. That made her visit go from great to downright exhilarating. The booking process required a two step payment process that required authorization forms seemed a bit cumbersome but other than that our experience was excellent. I highly recommend this property.

    The entire visit was absolutely brilliant! Unfortunately, I have forgotten our game drive guide's name but he was possibly the best and most knowledgeable guide we could ever wish for. All the staff were excellent and beyond our expectations. All in all a wonderful experience.

    We definitely enjoyed our stay at the reserve and we loved our bush guide! She was knowledgeable, friendly, fun, and worked hard to give us a great experience. Loved the number of baby animals we were able to see including giraffe, hippo, and elephant. Rooms were lovely and so comfortable. Due to the Easter holidays, the lodge was filled so service was a little slow at mealtimes but always friendly and helpful. Drinking water us not included with a board but plenty of options available. Definitely, recommend if you're liking for a quality game experience in this region!
