We stayed 2 nights in Baobab. From our arrival in Hoedspruitt airport we were treated wonderfully by Jason and the lodge´s team. If you are looking for a friendly relaxed visit to see the Big Five, this is the place for you. We had the opportunity to see a large number of animals in everyone of our 4 rides. Our ranger BJ led us expertly and safely while sharing his passion for the bush And in between rides we relaxed by the pool or were able to have great meals accompanied by excellent South African wine. Our cottage was enormous and beautifully decorated. We do look forward to returning sometime in the future. Thanks Baobab

Baobab Ridge provided an intimate, personal, extraordinary experience for our family of four to visit the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve. The staff is wonderful, attending to every need in a laid-back way that allowed us to just relax and enjoy. The food was delicious. The game drives were amazing with very close interaction with the animals. Klaserie Private Nature Reserve is very well managed and you can tell that the lodges and guides are committed to conservation. Overall this was an amazing experience that can't be matched in quality and value.

My wife and I stayed at this lodge and we had a wonderful experience. All through our visit, the lodge staff provided exceptional service and hospitality, and our host and hostess help ensure that we had a comfortable and enjoyable stay. Upon our arrival, they greeted us with glasses of ice tea then they showed us to our cabin. Our cabin was spacious and had the modern amenities found in a five star hotel. The food was excellent, and topped off with nightly dinners around a fire and under the stars (weather permitting) made for an amazing experience. For us, the best part of our stay were the game drives and that in large part is because we had two excellent guides, David and Jayson, who were both knowledgeable and experience. We chose give each guide a try and were very pleased with both. Although we only stayed two nights, which allow for 4 game drives (we took a morning and an evening drives with each guide) and you can drive around in the bush for hours and see nothing, fortunately our guides got us to areas for sightings of all the big 5 (lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo). In fact, we saw 4 of the big 5 on the first drive. Just as amazing, we saw lions on all four of the drives. We also saw zebras, giraffes, a hyena, antelope and a few other animals. The service, lodging, food and game drives exceeded all our expectations and we thoroughly out stay at the lodge.
