We had an amazing experience at Pondoro and we will definitely be back. Robbie and Lize really made us feel at home and they went out of their way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. In my opinion this is one of the best holidays we've had as a family. The food was really 6 star quality and all the staff were extremely friendly and helpful with every request we had. This is really one of those places that you rarely find that truly have amazing accommodation, food and wildlife scenery. The luxury accommodation was really something special. We had complete privacy and the Jacuzzi was a big highlight of the trip. I would recommend anyone considering going, to book your trip now, this is one holiday that you won’t forget. Thank you so much Robbie, Lize and all the staff.
