Very good stay with a guide who is very keen on all the biology in the reserve. Sundowners at another private camp, and a camfire and braai in the middle of nowhere were just very special. Accommodation is separate chalets style camp with a fantastic communal area and pool, and well serviced by the staff. The camp is securely fenced.
Excellent game viewing, giraffe, zebra, fantastic kudu, etc, plus fresh signs of elephant (not seen), and we missed a cheetah by minutes.
Being only half an hour from Pretoria, one couldn't get much a better chance for a weekend away from the rat race, or even a mid week break and still be just on your own. Large camp will cater for families or groups, so you can be as private or as social as you want to be.
I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys getting away. As the reserve is still new, it will be good to see how the area develops over time.
