This was a well organised trip from start to finish with well chosen stops for refreshment and for sightseeing both on the way and on our return. Our excellent driver, Gareth, was knowledgeable and good company. The accommodation at the reserve was clean and comfortable in a romantic setting especially under the light pollution free, star-studded, night sky. The dawn skies were equally breathtaking. All the staff at the reserve were welcoming and committed to providing a good service. The ride in the jeep was 'bouncy' but fun. Wrap up warmly and take binoculars if you have some.

Travelling as a couple, the most amazing tour with incredible stops on the outbound and inbound journey including to see penguins, The southern most point of Africa, and potentially stingrays. The guide Benjamin is simply fantastic and would highly recommend. The two safari drives are Exactly as advertised and we saw the majority of the animals. The lodge itself was lovely with Paul, games room and all other facilities you would need. 10 out of 10 experience and highly recommend to anyone looking to do a Safari tour from Cape Town

Our 2-day safari experience was fantastic. Our guide, Benjamin, was excellent, informative, knowledgeable and thoughtful. The lodge was lovely and the safaris were well-organised and fun. I would recommend this mini-adventure to anyone wanting a great introduction to the Western Cape.

Sbusiso was the best guide we could have ever imagined! He knows a lot of things, historical and cultural facts of the country. The safari and the whole Lodge is definitely a lifetime experience! Thank you Ntsiko for the organization, thank you Sbusiso for these awesome two days!

Had a wonderful trip with Ray. Excellent driver, friendly and made the whole day interesting. The weather held up and I can now say I have been to the southernmost tip of Africa!
