I stayed in this Game Reserve some 20 years ago, and now I had the pleasure of taking my wife to this fantastic place. It is about two hours north of Pretoria or Joburg. We asked for one the suites, and we got one of them, fabulous.
Our ranger, Ockie, took us on three fantastic drives, the drives are at 4:30 to 7 pm and 05:30 to 8 AM. In the morning drive we visited the lions, and we got some fantastic photos. Ockie also walked with us to approach the rhinos, coming as close as 20 meters away from two of them. Thanks!
Food is from the buffet with meat from crocodile and other specialities. Go for a wine from the wine list, the house wine is crap.
