Reviews from previous Bonamanzi Game Reserve guests
“Awesome weekend spent in one of the tree houses, Tree house was neat and clean, everything in working order. Even spending the weekend in a tropical storm was comfortable. Really great 3 course dinner in the restaurant. To top it off we had the rare experience of feeding 2 of the crocodiles that are in the Lalapanzi dam,” wrote 858clinto on their TripAdvisor page.
Tasha A added; “Thoroughly enjoyed camping on bush campsite 18 and discovering a place we’ve never been to before. You have to work hard to find the game but that’s what makes it so rewarding. We self-drove and a lot of the roads are not suitable for regular vehicles. There is the option to go on guided game drives though. We will definitely be back with friends in the future.”
