Bongani location is breathtaking, nestled in the mountains with huge boulders all around you cannot ask for better. Room are excellent and although game viewing can be limited I have enjoyed all my stays here. I do think the restaurant and food need improvement.

Ideal for tour parties. Great game viewing, food disappointing for a non meat eater, service had odd moments of guest centricity... felt processed mostly. Rock Pool not manned, bar area dominated by TV, all drinks not included. Views are superb!
