This was our second visit to Lions Valley, this time taking our son and his girlfriend who were visiting from the UK.
The staff are so helpful and obliging,always a smile.
Nothing was too much trouble and the accommodation is beautiful,each room with a different theme.
The only downside we had was with our ranger.He was extremly knowledgable but we did have to continuingly ask questions as he was not that fourth coming with information.
That was fine for the three of us that visit reserves regularly and know what a guinea fowl is etc but not for those having there first experience.
More often than not we pulled up to view an animal or bird and nothing was said until a question was asked.
As previously said his knowledge was excellent but maybe a little more experience will help.
I would extremely recommend Greg as your ranger for a visit.He drove us to collect our car on our departure and gave us so much information when we came across things.
Greg is also the GM along with his wife Audrey who make your stay extremly special.
The game viewing was good considering the grass was so long and we even had lions visit the camp.
We look forward to retuning again.
