"Good morning we enjoyed it very much. It was nice to be a little bit "apart" from the huzzle & buzzle of other visitors and to have our own game driver. We enjoyed it thoroughly with our two visitors from overseas. Many thanks "

"Stay was excellent. The service was great and the staff very helpfull. The lodge is beautifull, althought it is showing signs of age now. Also the directions on the Portfolio website is poor, no DIRT road to travel on except for inside Mabula. Overall a great stay and will definitely return"
