This is an amazing place, everything was clean and well kept, the tents were really lovely and cosy in the evenings once you got your log burner going. Wonderful views of the cheetahs and rhino. Our daughters and friends had a brilliant 3 nights, we took two different evening trips out, one for the lion and African painted dog feeding and another for the small cats feeding, both were brilliant and well worth the £5 per person as the keepers knew what they were talking about and got the most out of the cats for our viewing. We visited both parks over the weekend and enjoyed these immensely as well. We had taken cheeses and cold meats for the first two nights and ate at the restaurant on the sunday as our daughter turned 21 that day, the food was lovely and our daughter got to cook her own dinner on the grill which was great fun. We had the included brekkie most days and this was also enough to keep us going. All in all we did think it was magical, lions roaring, gibbons whooping and views of cheetahs. A real must for animal lovers!
We stayed at Elephant Lodge from 03.09.15 to 05.09.15.
I would just like to say how we enjoyed the few days we were there. The staff were lovely and very helpful.
A big thank you has to go to Sally and Alex on the AAA safari on Friday 04.09.15. It was an absolute blast. Very easy going with lots of information given on animals and the foundation itself.
I had a little problem on the day that was dealt with professionally along with lots of jokes and laughter aimed at me from my family, all in good humour.
I have already recommended the animal reserve to friends and will be back to visit, maybe the tree House hotel next time.
