The reserve is small, but one can get quite close to the animals for great photos. Our guide was knowledgeable, funny, and navigated our flat tire in the middle of the ride with expertise. Abigail P 11-Oct-2017 This tour was amazing! Susan C 27-Aug-2017 Excellent! Saw 4 of the big 5. Didn't see the leopard but saw all the others plus other animals as well. You get 1 bathroom break 1 hour into the drive to the Reserve. Left reserve about 3:30pm, no bathroom break stop none need it but wasn't offered either. Lunch was good but you have to pay for drinks. Went in end of August and was cold 42 degrees F. Had to get jackets in gift shop but found out later they provided blankets in the jeeps. All animals were on the right side of the jeep during my tour. Of course we were seated on the left. But still was able to see and take some amazing photos. All 7 lions were so close to our jeep. lucaslow 11-Jul-2017 Good experience at a private game reserve. The safari guide provided useful information on the animals.
