What a lovely stay. The resort is great and caterers for every need. We were lucky enough to have daily visits from kudu and zebra (right at our front door). Units are clean and neat. The ultimate highlight was going on a game drive and seeing almost EVERY type of animal gather at the waterhole. It was amazing
Went to this beautiful spot in the North West with some great friends and family to spend the weekend and watch the Final Match - what an amazing weekend !! The grounds are clean, staff are friendly and helpfull.
We have been going to Dikhololo for the past 20 years and hopefully will continue for at least the next 20 years. Over the past 20 years we have seen many changes, good changes. This time we were in one of the newly renovated units, totally amazing, the only complaint we had was that the safe was up in the 2nd bedroom, not in the main bedroom. The restaurant was closed due to renovations and a restaurant had been opened in one of the camps but we did not try it as you would need to drive out to it from where we stayed. Missed out on our Coffee and Scones :( . We were also fortunate to see an abundance of animals and even had Kudu, Zebra and Nyala "visiting" us - a wonderful experience. Unfortunately, a couple of cons - the Convenient store - we advised on arrival that we would like the newspaper from the Monday to Friday, we only received it twice, the third time, it never arrived at the Resort and the Thursday the staff gave it to a gentleman just in front of me! There are no English newspapers on a Sunday!!! Wine from the bar was poured into plastic "glasses" and on Saturday night we were kept awake by a "concert" being held at the Main Complex - we could hear the music in our chalet with the doors and windows closed. We find this unacceptable as there are signs everywhere advising guests to keep noise levels down at all times! Overall, we had an amazing week and can't wait to go again next year and see all the new renovations!
Excellent service, clean, modern and working facilities. Such friendly staff. Beautiful! Very good menu and very well prepared meals. Only slight drawback is units not as modern as everything else. Well worth a visit!
Spent this past weekend at Dikhololo and I have to say I loved it! Everything was just so easy to find, art for my little ones, arcade games for the big kids and something for every one of my family. It reminded me of the times I spent at various SA holiday resorts during the 90's. Away for the busy Main Complex it was generally quiet and watching the animals come and go was just great. One can always find small negatives but the positives far out weigh anything negative about the resort. I will be back, thank you Dikhololo.
An ideal place to spend a week breakaway. Activities for all ages. Dry in winter but then you have an opportunity to enjoy the animals at the feeding stations. Walking and cycling can be done as none of animals are dangerous. Keep in mind that the animals are not pets and do not approach to close. The accommodation is clean and an effort is made to maintain the Reserve.
After a particularly rough ride for the last 12 kilos I have to say the friendly welcome by the gate staff followed by the Receptionist was the best thing about visiting this resort... our studio apartment was tired to say the least and where have you ever found an aircinditioner on it's own pre paid meter. ..? The studio apartments are basically a house divided into four and every little bit of noise from each can be heard and if like us you're unlucky enough to have a neighbour who couldn't care that his karaoke renditions of Neil Diamond into the early hours of the morning were keeping everyone awake, youre in for a very unpleasant night. Finding wild life was easier to do than finding any of the Dikhololo staff and of particular concern is that with all the children's activities and facilities there is very little (if any at all) supervision by staff as to what people or children were getting up to. The sad thing is that the resort has so much promise and there is lots for everyone to do but you're left with the impression that the whoever is in charge just couldn't care and you're left to just get on with it. Would we come back...na, I don't think so, the road is bad, the place is dusty as hell and nobody seems to care if you're here or not....!!
It was a dusty visit for the weekend... especially the 10km dirt road to get to the resort. Nonetheless, the main reception area with pools and amenities was beautifully kept. The chalet did not resemble the pictures on the website, so that was a bit of a disappointment, especially the smelly drains which was only fixed by noon the next day. The amenities like minigholf and heated swimming pool that you have to pay extra for above the already pricey rate for a weekend, also a down putter. Limited wild visible and the kudu's in between the chalets were aggressive.
Although the road leading to the lodge can be described as horrible and no pleasure to drive on when entering the lodge's entrance everything changes. You are greeted by friendly guards on duty, directing you to reception where you are invited and welcomed by professional and friendly reception staff. We were booked in a chalet were they were busy with upgrading but were allocated another unit. The chalet was neat and tidy and serviced on a daily basis. Driving through the nature roads we were treated by zebra, giraffes, waterbuck. It is clear that the lodge is maintained well as there are upgrades on all infrastructure. A truely wonderful experience.
Still the best bushveld break away, quiet, and friendly. Slow cruising game drive, sharing the road with friendly and sharing drivers. Saw impala, kudu, zebra, krombekneushorings, eland, nyala ewes and blesbok. Got really close to the animals.
