What our guests have said about this accommodation

Stuart Moir
A great wilderness experience with just the right amount of comforts. The Reed cabins are well designed and constructed and all amenities functioning. Seth the caretaker was helpful but remained discrete so we weren't aware of his presence. It is odd having goats roaming around in a nature park.
Michael Leuw
Altogether a fabulous trip. There are many points, though, that need and should be made to forewarn travellers in the Richtersveld. The first and most important one is that your vehicle should have adequate ground clearance. There are a lot of high centre rock mounds on the tracks and my car (a Jeep Cherokee, hopeless clearance!) was not really enjoying the constant battering from under. Also some of the approach roads in and out of the Park are very corrugated and take their toll on the suspension. They should be graded, urgently. At times the track you are attempting to follow disappears and you need a compass. We lost the route a couple of times and, at 10kms/hr, fuel and time and wear is wasted. Obviously the remoteness is daunting - we travelled solo and saw very few other vehicles in three days. The Park is very well run and arrivals and departures are noted so you are never really threatened by the loneliness... The desert is visually staggering but one has to be alert for any signs of life. There are plenty but easily missed. Birds are aplenty that's for sure! I feel privileged to have experienced this area of SA, and have now driven to every corner of the country. Mission accomplished. Thank you!

All good except for communication radio that was at full volume the whole day. Person attending the camp -very friendly. Fridge did not work

We have just spent 2 nights at the beautiful Tatasberg Camp. You felt islolated yet at the same time at peace with the world. The chalets, are well furnished, with spectacular views of the Orange River both ways. When they said that we needed 4x4's and we would need 3-4 hours to get to Tatasberg from Sendelingsdrift, they were not joking! We never dreamed that the roads would be so challenging and thank goodness we had all been on a 4x4 course! We had a relaxing day walking up and down the river and cooked up a storm both nights. We got great pictures of the brave genets that visited us both nights but did not think it was fun when they raided our kitchen and overturn the rubbish bins during the night. I guess they had been fed by previous guests! When the caretaker said we could return to Sendelingsdrift via De Hoop we left feeling confident but when we turned left too early at the High Risk 4x4 route (mainly our fault, but you do not have the mileage on this route) I guess this should have warned us but 3 hours later, after building roads from rocks the Freelander and the Discovery stood up to the challenge. As scary as it was while we were having this adventure, we were thrilled in the end to have completed it! I would hate to think how and who would have got us out if we had had problems. We were thankful to have taken a satelite phone even though we did not need it! I really feel you should make your signs a little clearer and make sure that one knows that we are entering a High risk route!!However,this ended up as one of the many highlights of a 4 week holiday in Namibia and the Richtersveld and I would love to come back in the flower season

Unorgettable trip in South Africa
We have spent 12 days as a family in South Africa with my 3 children and my wife who is in a wheelchair. Thanks to Pascal, Safari.com consultant, we were able to spend an unforgettable moment with a great program while being well accompanied despite our constraints. I recommand particularly the "Monwana game lodge" for a safari in Hoedspruit. It's an amazing place with very nice people and a real family atmosphere. Thank you to the entire Safari.com team for this unforgettable trip.

Superior service, knowledgeable, transparent, amazing can-do attitude
These guys get 10/10. I have booked with them a few times. To Kruger National Park, including both public and private(concession) camps, flights and car hire. Their senior agent, Dolan is exceptional. Nothing is too much trouble. Attention to detail, transparency, and 'can-do' attitude are out of the ordinary. I recently came into contact with Tanya at safari.com as well. It looks like all their agents are similarly well trained. Thank you. I cannot recommend Dolan and his team highly enough.

Cape Town miracle
I was in Cape Town, South Africa recently for an athletic competition and had allowed myself a week of personal time to relax and properly conclude the trip, but had not bothered to plan a safari to occupy the time. I was skeptical of the cost and whether I would enjoy the experience, however a couple days into that final week it occurred to me, in a bit of a panic attack, what a waste it would be not to take advantage of this opportunity. I hopped online and started looking at flights to Johannesburg (almost all the safaris in SA start there with an early morning pick up), but it was basically impossible to get a flight early enough and/or to coordinate with the multiple safaris operating in or just outside of Kruger. With no apparent options available to turn my remaining 4 1/2 days into even a 3 day safari I stumbled on the most obvious website one could imagine, Safari.com. I'd completely given up negotiating all the variables on my own but here was a safari travel agent that might be able to help me .. and they were based right out of Cape Town, literally a stones throw from my lodgings. Serendipity, or so i hoped. I immediately sent out an email and crossed my fingers .. for roughly an hour and a half, at which point Dolan from Safari.com responded to me requesting I give him a call so that we could expedite potential arrangements. My in country phone plan wasn't able to make calls, but we arranged for him to call me and not 3 hours after being in the grip of despair Dolan got through to me and far from notifying me of how absurd it was to hold out hope for a literally, last minute safari adventure with barely 4 days available to me, he had already worked out all the details I'd sent and created a preliminary safari trip that would bypass Johannesburg airport for a flight the next morning to a closer, much, much smaller airport where I would be picked up taken, not to a 3 day safari, but a full 4 day safari, then back to the tiny, tiny airport for a return flight to Cape Town with 2 hours to spare for my return leg all the way home. It almost feels like an afterthought, after the minor miracle Dolan was able to conjure up, but the safari itself at Simbavati Lodge was just an absolutely stunning experience. The single "tent" he booked me was as luxurious as any 4 star hotel I've stayed in, the game drives, one every morning, one every evening were more amazing than I could have ever imagined, and the food, 3 meals a day with snacks and an open bar was sublime. I could go on about the wonderful staff, or the wonderful other safari goers you can meet and grab a drink with, or the different animals walking through the open lodge facilities daily .. but I've gone on long enough. I'll simply conclude by saying .. safari, absolutely, yes, do it, it is amazing. And when you do decide, Safari.com will do you right and if you have the pleasure of working with Dolan, do give him my thanks .. the entire experience was the best part of my trip :)

A great company
What to say! We planned a South African Safari for 2020 with Safari.com. We researched companies and took a chance on one we had never heard of before. Henry Franklin was our agent, we gave him our budget and wish list. He came up with a wonderful looking trip and we made our choices! Then came Covid, preventing us from going. We couldn’t have been in better hands. Henry rebooked everything for the next year. He kept us updated on how things looked there. When in 2021, we decided it still looked iffy, he rebooked us a second time for 2022. We couldn’t have been happier with the service we had in a rough time for all. We had a wonderful experience on our trip when we finally got to go!! Henry had everything so well organized and gave us a detailed list of what transfer companies would be meeting us and when. When Airlink bumped us and put us on standby returning from Victoria Falls, we called the concierge number Henry had given us and Catherine worked hard on this and got us back on our flight. The Safari.com team had our back and we have no regrets. Would definitely use them again. Our lodging was wonderful, saw the big 5 within first 2 drives. Henry definitely knew the territory and did a great job matching what we wanted with where he suggested we go and stay. Thanks Safari.com, Henry and Catherine!

I've recently interacted with Dolan and hands down he's been the best travel agent that I've every worked with. He was a wealth of experience and knowledge which shows volumes. He took into consideration my budget and my individual needs to tailor make a package with recommendations for my preference,he knows Kruger and Greater Kruger like the back of his hands and I will wholeheartedly recommended his services. He is truly an asset to his institution.
