"From the moment we were picked up at our hotel in Johannesburg on Monday morning to our drop off Thursday suppertime we had nothing but a great time with Outlook Safaris. The accommodations were wonderful, the organization exceptional and second to none, the meals first-class and the guides impressive. The variety of accommodations caters to everyone from those wanting tents to chalets. Our guide, Debbie, was knowledgeable and passionate about sharing this knowledge with us as well as getting excited herself at the behaviour of the animals. As a bonus we saw the big five and the ugly five . Our driver, Aderto, was also committed to doing an excellent job getting us safely to and from Kruger Park and it was not his fault that the weather thwarted our efforts to see God’s Window and the Three Rondavels on the Panoramic route back. That is one thing which might be improved upon. If the company could get someone from Graskop who would report the weather conditions (if this is even possible ahead of time) clients could choose to stay back for another game drive instead of going back on the Panoramic route and seeing nothing because of the fog. We were able to see Lisbon Falls, however, and the countryside when visible was beautiful. . We would highly recommend this 4 Day Kruger Park Safari to anyone."

"The two nights stay was stunning. The place is beautiful and the area well manage. Your stay will be great, whatever the room your choose. Two restaurants are available as well with good quality food. And the view from the room ... what a view !"
"This is a really lovely intimate place, from the moment you arrive at the security gate you feel in complete luxury, greeted at the car by a member of reception, bags taken to your room while you are given a little main lodge tour, and complete the paper work. The rooms are just delightful, everything is thought of, even down to bug and mosquito spray! Quality products through out. Complete privacy in all areas of the room. Fabulous views, exceptional staff, and stunning food. Only slight issue we had was that the pools are not temperature regulated, so we couldn't use it the duration of our stay as it was too cold, which is a real shame. However, would return tomorrow if I could."
"Most beautiful place! Unique location. Close to Plettenberg Bay. Stayed in the manor house, such quality and excellent service. Luxury all the way. Definitely first class accommodation, food and wine."
"Never have I been so spoilt in my life! The smile that hit my face when we were given the tour of our treetop villa lasted for the duration of our stay. Views are spectacular, food and service were amazing. I'm so grateful for this unique experience. Calm, peaceful and perfect! Such a lucky girl"
"My wife and I shared a brilliant lunch in the treetops. One of the best venues in and near Knysna without a doubt. William was a fantastic host, we will definitely be back. The menu was small but all that we had was of an amazing standard and the service top quality. Just what you need on a romantic getaway."
"Location, location, location! Views exquisite! Breakfast fabulous selection of lovely food, service friendly and sincere. Treetop Villas amazing!!! Every luxury you can imagine in a tree palace, wonderland pathways, nature absolutely wild, wonderful and free! Certainly worth a visit!!"
"This gorgeous spot was our home during our three day Garden Route tour. As much as we loved our touring, it was always a pleasure to return to our lovely accommodations and relax. Food is excellent and the staff is friendly and helpful."
"My family and I stayed for 1 night in a villa, it was definitely one of the top 5 best hotels we have ever stayed despite having traveled the world. Impeccable 5 star staff service, luxurious and break taking views from the rooms and impressive setting. We enjoyed the privacy and the entire experience from the moment we checked in to our departure. I highly recommend this place if you want to get off the radar and pamper yourself in the heart of nature."
"This hotel really exceeded our expectations! From walking in the front door to the room itself, the attention to detail as well as the service was really excellent. We arrived late on a Friday and was advised to take a room service dinner. It was really outstanding! The room was spacious with all amenities you could ask for and it really is tree top with a wonderful view!! William's service was outstanding."
