This was our first safari experience and we were not very sure what to expect. From the moment we arrived, it was apparent that this resort was going to be the best choice we could have made. The welcome we received was warm, friendly and very personalised - you feel special and valued from the outset. Our lodge was spacious, clean and very tasteful (with an enormous, super-comfy bed!). The relaxed, calm enviornment means that you start unwinding from the very minute you arrive. We were introduced to our ranger Brett as soon as we arrived, along with our fellow safari group with whom we all shared our first evening meal getting to know each other. Brett proved to be extremely knowledgeable not only about the animals and plants we encountered over the next few days, but also he was able to discuss all different aspects of South Africa as we travelled and ate together, answering many different sorts of questions with a lot of insight and passion. Together with our waiter Freddie and Spotter Exon we were treated to the most fantastic few days at the start of our South African adventure. Thank you to all the staff at Kirkman's!
