    A lovely day safari with well organized transport, welcome lunch and drinks. The private game reserve is well maintained and you can see the big 5. maybe not as many animals as in the wild, but very nice to get so close to them. The guide was great and had valuable information.

    It is a 2 hour drive each way to the reserve with a break about half way there. The part of the drive through the mountains is very pretty. The day we were there it was hot at the reserve, so be prepared. Nice way to see the animals in a short amount of time. Our guide at the reserve was excellent.

    The drive there and back was rough. Van did not have real air conditioning just air so sweated a lot; plus it weaved on the road. Good thing I don’t get car sick easily. I think the front alignment was off. That is why I gave 4 stars. The game reserve was AWESOME, totally recommend. The animals there are taken care of and the rescue efforts definitely should be supported! A must see if in Cape Town!!!
