  • 8.0.Very Good

    Very good without blowing us away

    This is a lovely hotel but with a few imperfections. It is all about the safari and the safari was brilliant. In our three night stay we saw all the big five which was fantastic. The lodge itself is very good but looking a little tired in places. Our shower in particular was falling apart, although the room itself was of a high standard. Service was a little hit and miss. Very good most of the time but lacking when it really mattered. I would recommend Shepherd's Tree. Very good by South African standards and decent by European standards.

    The Restaurant and Food was superb, the Bar and outside space was great. The Staff were excellent. The Bedroom was great with amazing views but a little tatty round the edges, some things in the room were broken or damaged, it didn't affect the stay but for the price you expect perfection.

    One of the best hotels I have ever stayed. Staff are all super helpful and courteous. Game drives were very good, local guide was excellent. The food was also a highlight, all meals were amazing, the restaurant had a wide variety of options to chose from the menu. Facilities were in great condition, can't recommend enough this place. One thing to improve would be the outdoor showers, we had a hard time (because of the cold) bathing during the evening, since it was winter.

    The service & staff were so warm, friendly and helpful. The food was delicious, and plentiful. The game drives were well organised and exciting. Our guide, Sam, was excellent, as were other guides, including Andrew. This was the perfect holiday to combine excitement with relaxation. I highly recommend it.
