Hennie and his staff ensured a fantastic start of our week long travel in the Lowveld

review by Jan Kooyman, South Africa

"Nyala River Lodge & staff"

This was a particularly memorable part of our 6-week vacation in S.A. & Namibia - certainly the best by far for game viewing. Apart from almost rear-ending a very-surprised rhino on the way to searching for a leopard, we rewarded by a wonderfully clear sighting of the leopard. The staff were excellent and VERY accommodating - we can't praise them highly enough.In short, it lived up to its claims.
