Verified reviewexcellent

my sister and i stayed at River Lodge. It was amazing, fantastic. We were treated like royalty!! our game Ranger was super! He had all the answers to all of our questions. His ability to locate the animals was was wonderful. There was no animal left unfound!! Gizal was excellent in her Chef skills. The food was excellent We enjoyed her company very much and the conversations with her. She manages River Lodge and the staff with expertise. We wanted for nothing. Our rooms were imaculate and very safe. Everyone here is anxious to also have the Kariega experience. Thank you Gizal and Terry for the experience of a life time!!!!
