Lovely lovely spot but definitely some management needed.Feb 2023
What a very beautiful part of the world. Our lodge was private and decorated beautifully. Staff were lovely.
As for cons - - Our special request before arrival was to 'braai' as often as possible being typical South Africans and wanting to enjoy the Karoo evenings. Not once was this done for us or even attempted. Finally on last night we dragged chairs into the boma area and lit our own fire pit ... Modus Operandi for dinner seemed to be the same routine of a quickly served dinner at dining table with no attempt to use any outdoor facilities or do anything different. - For our entire stay , there was no stopping ( or suggestion) for the traditional drinks/snacks on afternoon / evening game drives even though a coolbox was routinely packed ? There seemed to be an excuse every evening. - It was a family members birthday and nothing special in anyway was suggested or provided .... maybe breakfast / coffee etc in bush would have been very appreciated.
We stayed in Pod 1. We highly recommend the Pods for a truly unique experience. the lodge is beautiful but spending the night on the mountain is unmatchable. It’s a 40 minute drive from the Lodge to the Pods but it’s spectacular.
nothing we didn’t like.
100% recommend! Especially the pods.Dec 2022
We stayed in one of the pods, and the view was amazing. It was a great experience to wake up in the middle of nowhere and see Rhinos a few meters away from the pod, as well as the incredile stars and clear sky at night. We also loved the staff who were super welcoming and especially our guide Abraham was super!
Nothing. We very much enjoyed our time.
We opted for the Pods, absolute experience that I highly recommend as one experiences wildlife on your doorstep. Comfortable rooms and fully equipped with everything one would need. Attention is given to every guest from the warm welcome, knowledgeable guides and the accommodation. Tish and CJ were our guides, the most amazing people ever! We have learnt so much from their passion.
Only I wish I stayed longer!
Best honeymoon trip!Oct 2022
We did not have to to anything. Top-class food meals three times a day with loads to drink at no extra cost. Two 3-hour game drives will keep you busy and entertained. Secluded.
There is nothing not to like.
High standard of lodging and sertDec 2021
very well taken care of. Property was nicely furnished and decorated. High standards overall.
A long way to get there (27 Kim’s gravel road), and we did not see so much animals on our game drives.
Staff were all friendly and accommodating and went the extra mile with a special occasion. ExcellentDec 2022
When the electricity/solar trips at the pods there is no wifi or network reception to contact the lodge. It may be necessary to inform guests what to do when this happens.
Peaceful Jun 2021
The staff friendliness , and relaxing in the peaceful areas anywhere inside or outside was great, with an awesome experience on the game drive
The Staff did an an-mazing job
The service, nothing was too much effort. The guide (Ryan) was so informative.
out of this worldMar 2022
the property was beautiful our pod was private, it was stunning. the food was exceptional and they catered for every need. the drives were beyond belief and our ranger was phenomenal. I cannot find the words to say what a once in a lifetime opportunity it was
The property was absolutely gorgeous and the staff so attentive and friendly. The meals and wine which was inclusive were really superb. Jason our guide was so knowledgeable and went the extra mile. Highly recommend.
The gravel road to the lodge needs to be graded.
A place that should be on everybody's bucket listMay 2022
The pods are spectacularly beautiful. No better place to rest. The service is excellent and our guide was outstanding and always helpful, friendly and on time.
A memorable stay that seled our holiday?Jan 2022
The pods are so different and we loved it…. the whole experience was great.
Fantastic experienceMay 2022
The most awesome pods! Great experience and super romantic
The Manor Staff Ladies were great. The Breakfast and Dinner was amazing. The game drives were good and Hein was a great Ranger with lots of knowledge. The Manor and Cottage was very clean and the staff take pride on the work they do.
The bed linen in the Cottage we stayed in was old and worn,even had a hole on the fitted sheet, also the towels had seen better days as all frayed around edges. The GM we saw only for a 1 minute brief upon arrival then on departure when we had to settle our Bill. Didn't observe much interaction with Guests..
Home Away From HomeNov 2022
The lodge is located in a beautiful valley with views all around. It has been beautifully restored and the rooms are tastefully decorated. We were upgraded to Peppertree Lodge which is secluded from the main Manor house, it has a hot tub to soak in. All the staff went out of their way to make our stay perfect.
Nothing to fault them!
20 Year AnniversaryNov 2022
The location was remote as one can get and the privacy 100% guaranteed. The POD ( no 2 ) was extremely well located for spectacular view of the Karoo Planes as well as the majestic Sneeuberge. The grass planes at the the top if the valley where the POD was located ensured for some amazing game viewing in the morning and afternoons. The game ranger and field guide Ryan Ormerod was immensely well knowledgeable and when he talked we would listed as there was ALWAYS something unique or interesting coming your way. The staff and the Manor House and main Restaurant was equally friendly professional and the food was excellent.
The water for shower tend to not get to the normal temperature one would expect ( could be due to the power/gas supply due to remoteness of the location) The skylight was difficult to open ( was not explained when we had a tour of the POD ) The spirits drinks that was available af the Manor House as part of full board was not stocked af the POD and only beers and wines ( not a huge issue as we took our own with aswel )
Very goodJan 2022
I thought it was expensive. I thought I had booked for 4 and it turned out I had booked for 2.
The location of the reserve was fantastic and the building was renovated in line with its origin. The food was great and the kitchen staff was really friendly. (And all the staff have been vaccinated) They went to a lot of effort for dinner on new Year's eve.
We did not get the room we booked. We were disappointed in the room on arrival, but did not raise the issue as the lodge was fully booked and thought the room was misrepresented on booking.com. When we left on the last day however, we saw another room that matched the pictures on the site, so I think we were given the wrong room. Looking at the website afterwards, I could not get one photo of the substandard room we were put in. To be specific, the room we booked were a Suite with Mountain View (including a seating area and private entrance). Our room was the smallest room possible, with no seats (other than the stool thingy at the vanity), and our door opened practically onto the communal kitchen. Information in the booklet in the room was out of date/incorrect and some options listed on the site wasn't offered (such as stargazing or the option of a bush walk in lieu of a game drive)
Very goodJan 2022
The location is absolutely incredible and the staff are wonderful.
was very good. Tish was amazing and so were all the staffJan 2023
the gardens and pool awesome
the load shedding. aircons need to be upgraded
everything exceeded our expectationsApr 2022
The Game Drives were the Highlight of our stay, Jason, our guide went out of his way to show us all the game on the property.
The WiFi was the only problem we had during our stay. It was knocked out by Load shedding, however was in the process of being repaired
We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely go back . I would also suggest a 3 day stayJul 2021
The food, total ambience, game drives and knowledge of our guide - everything was top nitch. We also had the luxury of the "honeymoon" suite : Peppertree Cottage The fire place, heated floors - everything was great !
Choice of menu - we were not asked if we were vegetarians for example
we had a wonderful stay. thanks to everyone who made the experience so exceptional.Apr 2021
The entire team was excellent, the accommodation is superb and it is an extraordinarily beautiful setting.

Stunning location and loved the breakfast. Flies were a bit of a problem, but the staff was very aware of the issue.
Staff were so friendly and the food was the highlight ofthe day . Compliments to the chef. Our ranger also helped us alot.
Needs a bit of maintenance in general . Roof was leaking in the corridor but nothingthat a bucket could not help with. Sheets were a bit torn .

The Shower door in Sweet Thorn needs attention as its catching on the tiles on the floor
