Wow! A very special, unique place.

Fantastic 5 night stay at Oase! From the get go Dave the owner was so helpful before I had even booked the holiday and that's what really sold it to us because we just got a good vibe and knew we would be really looked after.
The accommodation itself is one of a kind, the decor is modern but still in theme with being in the bush, everything is high quality and has all mod-cons. The bed and linen were amazing, comfiest I've ever slept in!! It's very private and you are not over looked by anyone, we didn't actually see any of the other guests during our stay!
Njabulo our butler was so so sweet, he was very welcoming and always wanted to do his best so we had the best stay which we really did.
I loved that everything was planned for us each day, it was so nice for someone else to do the organising. You can do as little or as much as you like, they cater to what you want to do. We enjoyed doing activities each day as well as chilling by the private pool with a cocktail.
Each day was filled with special moments and memories to last a lifetime. We had a full day at Kruger Park, did a leopard tracking walk in the bush with Fannie who is so knowledgeable about the animals he was fascinating to talk to and so friendly, we went on a boat ride along Blyde River which was stunning, had a private game drive at a nearby big 5 reserve, had a night sleeping under the stars at the treetop which was insane! We also had a massage and did a hot air balloon ride.
Every meal we had was specially set up in different locations, which is unique in itself plus the attention to detail was impeccable, it felt very romantic. I loved the picnic we had by the river, the most beautiful setting!
Despite Oase not being a big 5 reserve you still see plenty of animals, every day we came across giraffes, we were even lucky enough to see 3 baby giraffes which was incredible.
The food was brilliant, we never went hungry! On each trip out we were given snacks and drinks too which was a lovely touch.
Thank you to all the staff, everyone was so friendly and attentive. They go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. Oase is luxury in the bush with a very personal feel to it. We wish we could have stayed longer!

Our South African tour concluded perfectly at the Oase 7 Star Lodge. Fannie and Octavia ensured our stay was exceptional. The ever-changing beautiful lunch and dinner spots added a unique touch. The private cooking class with the chef on our last evening was a highlight. Additionally, the exceptionally soft linens made us feel like sleeping on clouds. We look forward to returning for a longer stay, allowing us to experience the sleepout as well.

The Chesterfield Villa was so comfortable, overall our stay was very enjoyable. Your butler helps you organise activities to make your experience more personal. We slept under the stars at the treetop sleepover, which was something different other camps do not offer.

We stayed for three nights in the Chesterfield suite. The suite is beautiful and our butler Happiness made our stay unforgettable. At the 7star lodges, the game drive guide Fanny can tell you everything about the animals. Great experience!

We did a road trip to SA, the last week we decided to spend here, I asked Dave to just plan it for us with Daily excursions.
What an experience it has been, food & people first class.
You can literally switch off from the whole world, but rest assured you do have good WIFI should you need it.

We were here for our honeymoon and everything was absolutely amazing. Octavia was an excelent butler and everyone went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed and help us with problems that went beyond the scope of our traveling. We would totally recommend!
