This was our first experience in a game reserve and it was wonderful. We stayed in the luxurious Queens cottage which was a fully equipped two bedroom house with full kitchen, two exceptional baths, great living room and extensive covered veranda with an expansive view of an edge of the Welgevonden Game reserve. The restaurant offered a nice selection of very good quality meals. From the time we parked our car until we departed, Kellyn made us feel welcome and right at home. We arrived too late for the first evening game drive so we took the mountain bikes for a 10K tour of the Kololo property where we saw a family of giraffe and a troop of baboons. The following day we had a six hour morning Welgevonden game drive with Bok and a three hour afternoon drive with Jasper. Both rangers are personable, knowledgeable, professional and genuinely interested that we enjoyed a great experience. We saw three of the big five up close as well as a variety of hoofed animals, jackals, birds, and the Klipspringer (Kololo) . This is a great place to stay and we enjoyed the ability to get out and explore the predator free Kololo reserve on foot or bike. Kololo also has a private gate just a few minutes from the lodge into the extensive Welgevonden Reserve. You can't go wrong with this laid back, accessible and friendly lodge.
