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

7-nights Safari
I made a reservation for a 7-night safari trip to two specific Private Game Reserves in the Kruger National Park in South Africa, for one of the busiest months in Kruger: August. This reservation was made at the last minute. (3 days ago). A reservation that had some special features, with choices from someone who has already done (my husband and I) several safaris in other African countries. The architecture and design of the lodges are important to us on a professional level. And the Private Game Reserves had to be the best. Anja Meyer, from Safari.com, started and completed the reservation process in 4 days, two of which were weekends. Very efficient, fast and understanding what we wanted for our week in the bush. We are "addicted" to safaris, wildlife, bush, landscapes, nature... and we love Africa and the Africans. We can't wait for August to arrive. Thank you!

My first experience a number of months…
My first experience a number of months back wasn't as I wanted. I picked up with Dolan a little after this to find when the best time to Safari was with the chance of seeing the "big 5" and he was so helpful, guiding me to July-September. With the cooler winter months being the better chances to see more wildlife and the big five. This lead me on to deal with Jayson. Jayson has pulled out all the stops, working past 9pm Cape Town time( 8pm London UK) to help meet my needs. I travel out on 6th July and cannot wait, Thank you Dolan and Jayson.

Sara Van Coillie has been extremely helpful in making our Namibia trip fantastic! We have emails up on emails of Sara answering all my (many) questions months and months before our trip. I've had last minute questions and requests right before and during our trip and she always responds with record time and helps us out. I feel all of our needs have been met and I couldn't be happier with Sara as our travel representative! Highly recommend her! :)

Thanks Pascal you are amazing!
From the moment we arrived in South Africa, our safari adventure was nothing short of extraordinary. Nestled in the heart of the African wilderness, we found ourselves surrounded by the breathtaking landscapes of Kruger National Park, a haven for wildlife enthusiasts. Our accommodation was luxurious yet seamlessly integrated into the natural environment, offering us stunning views of the savannah from the comfort of our private deck. Each day began with an exhilarating sunrise game drive, where our expert guide shared his deep knowledge and passion for the local wildlife. Witnessing the "Big Five" was an awe-inspiring experience that left us in complete awe of nature's magnificence. The guides were incredibly knowledgeable and made sure we felt safe while immersing ourselves in the wilderness. Evenings were equally enchanting, with sundowner drinks enjoyed against the backdrop of a fiery African sunset, followed by sumptuous dinners under the starlit sky. The cuisine was a delightful fusion of local flavors and gourmet dishes, perfectly complementing the day's adventures. The sense of community at the lodge was heartwarming. The staff were attentive, ensuring every need was met with a smile, and fellow travelers quickly became friends as we shared stories around the campfire. Our South African safari was more than just a holiday; it was a transformative journey that connected us with nature and left us with lasting memories. For anyone seeking an adventure that combines luxury, education, and unparalleled wildlife encounters, a safari in South Africa is an absolute must. We left with hearts full of gratitude and a profound appreciation for the natural world, eagerly planning our return to this magnificent land.

A great experience
Pascal was wonderful to work with! When one camp option fell through he quickly found an equal alternative for our group. He was always very responsive to my many emails and texts. I would highly recommend Safari.com.
