Overpriced for a very average cottage. The bathtub was cracked and the plug broken. The shower head had a worn washer and water was spraying in all directions. The single bed was so firm that even my 8 year old complained. The wifi didn't work and there was no way of contacting reception unless you used your mobile or take a drive up to the reception area. Not a single teaspoon was to be found in the cottage either and the patio door was locked with no key inside the unit. The rustic look lounge suite fits in with the decor but is very uncomfortable. At R360 p.p for a game drive, we decided against this as we could see that the lions, hyena and tigers were kept in enclosures a few meters apart from one another and not worth the price since we have spotted zebra, giraffe and ostriches simply by driving past the security gate to enter the property. The enclosures were in plain view from our cottage as well, so rather pointless for us to opt for the game drive option. The restaurant looks the part but the menu selection was disappointing and very limited in its selection. The place has potential but it just falls way short of the mark on a few aspects.

I have mix feelings about this place. I would recommend this project for adolescents before the age of 28 years old and only for 2 weeks. Glen Afric was my second volunteering program in South Africa. For the simple age factor, if I would have known the atmosphere and environment was that young and a party place, I wouldn’t have chosen this project. My first week with the project was good. I found the lodge was very beautiful with an amazing view of the surroundings. I loved the fact the farm had some wild animals in the area roaming around free. Feeding the plain animals in their free environment was great as we could see them so close with a respectful agreement between each other, as it should be in the wild. I loved the fact the farm had some horses to take care of and ride. The horse, cleaners and lodge staff were great and very friendly. I enjoyed my time with the team leaders, as they were friendly and helpful. Seeing baby ostriches from close was very cool. My best experience with the farm was seeing from close the surprises (baby lions, cheetahs and leopard). I loved Jaguar and the lion cubs. Also another best encounter for me was taking photographs of Selati, the female leopard. The negative factors about the project: -Program structure very repetitive – felt bored after 3 weeks (many volunteers left earlier than scheduled for this reason) -using healthy horses for feeding the predators - food quality poor and repetitive (big difference from lodge kitchen) should be the same as lodge guests as we work for the farm and paid a lot of money to help out, I even heard from drivers the food was disgusting -always pay cash for excursions or services in advance – a lot of money being withdrawn from our bank accounts for these reasons, therefore paying for fees each time we make withdrawals especially from a foreign country -no presentations about animals or Africa or even about the farm business, we leave this project with no knowledge about anything -owners did not welcomed or even acknowledge our presence at the farm – lack of professionalism and respect for the volunteers team leaders lack of professionalism with volunteers – too friendly in person and getting drunk with us – should have a limit in order for us to respect them and take them seriously – no discipline – should be more professional since staff and volunteer represent your organization – should be careful for posts being sent on Facebook or Instagram in order to keep a good reputation for your business unless you don’t care! -team leaders not really knowledgeable about wild animals in general – they are for your domesticated animals that are captives as per their character but volunteers wanted to know more about them as an animal -health prevention not implemented at the farm – many situations we could get hurt and since staff not strict about rules or preventing injuries volunteers do not listen or care about what happens – personally I was injured twice during my stay One of the volunteer had a room at the lodge and one day was electrocuted from the taps of the shower and the sink but the problem was not fixed until a week passed. That is not acceptable. They could have been severally hurt especially if they had a medical condition. At the beginning of our stay nobody informed us the fences were set up with electricity and many volunteers were zapped. Not funny even if your staff thinks otherwise. -overview the overall of the volunteer’s whereabouts they do what they want when they want. -The volunteers stay and are united at the quarantine location but we have to walk all over to the lounge if we want to sit to a regular table and only one couch to sit watch movies or relax for 30 volunteers. A bigger area should be made with comfortable chairs and sofas. Money we give you is used for what exactly?? No information provided about your business goals, impact and fundraising. The last thing I find disturbing is the fact that no animal from the farm once rehabilitated for the wild do not go back to the reserves since I know there is not really anymore wild land for these animals – your program says you do but from all the information I received on this project you prefer to keep them at the farm and raise them in a captive domesticated life. For example, the wild four lions and the cubs should be sent to a reserve to live a more wildlife. Since you cannot work with them and babies were consummated from this wonderful situation, they should have been all sent at the time the three cubs were born to a reserve, even to try and see if it was possible but as your staff commented you preferred to keep them as humans for the entertainment of cinema which I think is disgusting to say!! They should have deserved the chance to a free life. After 5 weeks I learned they would be sold. I hope there are going to a wild reserve. Being a resident in the country of my town, the whole volunteering project experience felt like being at home on the farm, cleaning animals, feeding them and working on fixing the place better. Not what I expected and thought from the information provided at time of booking. Many other volunteers and myself thought the farm was a center to help wildlife go back to the reserves and research them by taking more time with them to understand their behaviors and how the process of rehabilitation was moving on but we simply feed them and play with the babies. A cultural dinner during the week would be nice to have. Learn about the culture and decorate the volunteer room with your music. This way we can say we ate some African food not international.

First night stay of a family holiday to South Africa and booked four safari tents. What a fantastic choice. Sure, the tents are basic but they are roomy, spotlessly clean and come with full en-suites and double or single beds. All family members had a great nights sleep and awoke to a variety of wildlife virtually outside every tent - wildebeest, giraffe, zebra. What a great start to any day!! Meals (dinner and breakfast) were excellent. All freshly cooked and served by couteous, friendly and efficient staff. Can thouroughly recommend Glen Afric. Mine and my wifes second visit here but the rest of our family's first. Superb value for money and everyone wished we had booked for longer. Thank you Glen Afric. We will be back

The Elephant Walk will stay with me for ever as will the sundowners and braai on G and T hill. Thank you Carina for making all our activities fit into a limited time and for your attention to detail, and thank you Stanley for rescuing us when the wind started to blow rather too strongly on the hill!!! This was our second visit but it won't be our last.

We booked a one night stay in a lake side lodge. When we arrived we were treated to a great lunch which was included in the safari experience price. Drinks were chargeable as an addition. The views are absolutely fantastic. We were then taken on over a 2 hour safe by the fabulous Mels whose knowledge was outstanding. We first walked and touched the elephants - as life time dream!! We were then taken round the park to see all sorts of animals such as lions, tigers, an albino lion (extremely rare), monkeys, leopards, giraffes, warthogs etc etc. The old series Wild at Heart was filmed on this park as well. We had dinner in the evening which was great, stayed in the lodge overnight and it was wonderful to hear the lions and tigers roaring at night. Can't wait to go back !
