We had a save and wonderful journey. Thanks for all the equipment supplied. We did not even feel the load shedding.
We appreciate Tshidi’s respect and hospitality she gave us. I will recommend your place to my other colleagues.

We had an excellent time, the lodge is well equipped with gas stove, lights and brains stand. We did not even feel the load shedding. It rained the whole weekend and we did enjoy indoors with the jacuzzi.

“Attention to detail, all the amenities offered, comfort as well as position, all contributed to the best "bush" experience any of us have ever had.”

Mabalingwe is really special, especially considering it’s proximity to Jhb and Pta. Loved exploring it in a game vehicle at our own leisure. Spotted over 93 different species of animals and birds. Wonderful rhino sighting. Kids enjoyed the predator park.
Uzuri was a great base. Superbly equipped with a beautiful location with relaxing patios and boma. Nice to have a pool and jacuzzi to cool off in. The lodge has enough space for all to find a spot to relax.

WOW! This place will exceed your expectations. What a wonderful place to get away and feel refreshed. Plenty of wildlife to see and the safari truck is a must. The house is fully equipped with beds and plenty of kitchen utensils. The house is built for many people and has a great eating place for everyone to enjoy each other’s company. The hot tub and pool are a great add depending on the time of year you plan to attend. Johanna is a huge addition and cannot fathom having her not there. A pleasant bonus to have your dishes done every day. The outside fire pit is amazing with an incredible view. The stars a crystal clear at night and the sun set and sun rise are spectacular from this location. A simple must-see experience.
