We enjoyed our 4 nights at Honeyguide. Our guide and tracker, Brillant and Anthony were wonderful. We saw the big 5 on the first 2 game drives. We were told that we were staying at Kruger. Note: This is not Kruger and you will not be allowed to drive into Kruger. This is a game reserve and different rules apply. You are able to go off road. Allows you to see more animals up close. But sometimes it feels like stalking.
Our travel agent did not advise us about optional excursion that are available at Honeyguide. But the staff had room on a tour group from Sweden and allowed us to join them on the Panoramic tour. It was great. A long bus ride, but worth it for what we saw. We had several stops, so it broke up the ride. The guide was excellent and after he spoke in Swedish, he explained it all again in English for us.
The food and staff are great. One of the best meals I had was a hamburger for lunch. It was excellent. All other meals were very good. One evening, they had a barbeque dinner.
The camp caters to Northern Europeans. But everyone is welcome. And everyone speaks English. Very glad we choose this camp.
The accommodations were wonderful. With that being said, they do need a light in the sink area of the bathroom. Very difficult to put in contacts and makeup with a flashlight, even during the day. The shower is open and exposed to the bathroom. Does not allow for privacy. And it gets VERY COLD at night in the winter. We were there in early June, and the first real cold front came thru. We woke up at 6 am to frost everywhere. There was no heat and no heating blankets. A shower was impossible, even getting out of bed was hard.
But that is life in tents and a very good overall experience.
