We travelled around the reserve on horseback - and it was a terrific experience. Our guide 'President' was informative and funny. We were out for about 2.5 hours and got amazingly close to zebra, a giraffe, wildebeest, gnu and springbok. Being on horse back the animals almost ignored us and weren't spooked by us getting too close. We were very... More

Dear Anzelle We sincerely apologize for this experience you encountered with us. The staff should ask all guests before signing their indemnity forms if they have any experience. The reason why we don't want to allow first time riders without any experience is because you are walking freely between the wild animals. Anything can easily frighten the horses for example...

We took a horse safari here, after doing the same a few years ago. I am certainly no rider, but Rooi proved as bit lazy even for me, I never thought I would be pushing a horse to go faster. The ride lasted 2 - 2 1/2 hours and we got up close and personal with Elephants, Rhinos, Hippos, Buffalo,... More

My family and I stayed for one night. We were escorted to a family room that had 2 bedrooms and a lounge. The view is breathtaking! Our package included a game drive that was great-and we saw the big 5 and much much more. Our ranger was incredibly informative and knowledgeable. We met with the chef who took our order... More

We had an amazing day riding around all the beautiful wild animals (Rhinos, Zebras, Antelopes) we also saw Hippos, crocs and many many more, Robert our guide was very knowledgeable and he kept the kids (ages 14-15) engaged at all times asking them questions and asked them to name the 2 rhinos :) a must !

Had a fabulous overnight stay in the Baroness Lodge & were thoroughly spoiled by the very attentive staff... Game drive the following day was just awesome. Thank you to all the staff... we will most certainly be back & will highly recommend you to all our clients.

At first we were impressed. Big room, fire on in the grate, complete with hippo in the pond - all very friendly, welcoming and reminding you of a romantic, by-gone time. Regrettably, not much has been done to the place since then. The toilet/showering facilities were definitely not "Baroness Luxuery". It as far too small, the shower door hit the... More
