Very well organised tour and safari. The tour guide JP was really great, gave us a lot of information and we had some great conversations along the way. In the first safari we saw a whole lot of animals, including the 4 of the big 5 that lived there. Then we had some ostrich kebab and some beers at the hostel. The guys there were super nice. Next day we met some elephants and got to feed them, which was like SUPER WOW, elephants are giant, amazing and super smart. The second safari wasn't so succesfull regarding the big animals (we saw them but from a bigger distance) but then again, they're wild animals, you don't always get to stand almost next to them. Still saw two rhinos, a lot of giraffes, mountain zebras, antilopes, water bulls and others. .We headed back through route 62 which was amazing, had a stop at a super restaurant and got home in the afternoon. For me it was a game changer experience, since I've already been in 1 day safaris, but the whole driving, sleeping, eating and

This was one of the best experiences of my life. Our tour guide JP is simply the best guide you could wish for on a tour like this. He made sure that we as guests were always happy, he was more than happy to answer all our questions regarding all these amazing animals that we saw on that weekend and also all our questions regarding this amazing country which I definitely plan on visiting again in the future. We saw all the animals that I at least wanted to see, including rhinos, zebras, giraffes, buffaloes, elephants, water bucks, and of course lions! And all of them in a distance of 4-20 meters! It was fantastic! Thank you very much JP and Hotspots2c for providing me this experience! I will definitely do it again!

The safari itself was very good but it was a really long journey to the Lodge and the mini bus was very uncomfortable I felt the lodge rooms were tired and needed a refurbishment Also i dont think enough thought was given to the allocation of the rooms As a solo traveller i didnt appreciate being put up in one of the lodges which was a lonely dark walk from the main part of the hotel and very close to the carpark I really didnt feel safe here and so had a sleepless night. I did ask for a different room but the hotel werent able to give me one as were fully booked Our Ranger and tour guide were very good and knowledgeable

This was a great trip, both for the game drives and the spots visited on the way to the Game Lodge. Benjamin is a fantastic guide, with loads of fantastic facts and stories to share. He won the price for best guide of Middle East & Africa, and we could totally understand why.

Our first time experience with Canopy zipline was amazing! The guides were fun to be with and were also very much focused on client safety while making sure that we had amazing time.
