We stayed here on a recent family vacation in three of the four rooms at Shearers Lodge. The rooms are luxurious and worth every rand. Helen and Lance and the staff took great care of our family. The meals were fantastic. The nightly pub session (including our kids) with the Fowlds (owners) was a great opportunity to learn about the history. Our game ranger Luke was friendly, persistent, and accommodating. We saw almost every animal on the reserve in our three days. I can't imagine a better game reserve experience in our first trip to South Africa. The two highlights were the outdoor meal with most of the staff and owners on the first night and Luke's persistence in finding the lions.
