This is the best reserve. They have various properties to suite any option from honeymoon lodges all the way up to child friendly lodges. Fell inlove with the reserve and will definitely be back soon.
Absolutely amazing food! More food and drink then you can imagine. Eagle's Crag was one of the best game experience's I've ever had. Amazing service from the Rangers and the waiters. Great wildlife too! I managed to see a lion kill from start to finish. Highly recommended!
