What our customers have to say
Once in a lifetime
My husband and I wanted to experience our first safari whilst in the Cape a decided to push
the boat out with a two night stay at the Sarili lodge. I can't rate our stay highly enough. The
lodge itself is stunning, our room was huge, with the most comfortable bed and beautiful
view of the reserve. The game drives were fantastic. This really was a once in a lifetime
experience for us and we can't thank the team at the Sarili lodge enough for exceeding all
My wife and I stayed for 2 nights at the Sarili Lodge Accommodation in December 2017.
Approximately 50 minutes easy drive from PE with the exception of the last 1 mile rough
track. We absolutely loved our stay here, the staff could not do enough for us during our stay
without being over bearing. The resort is small with only 4 or 5 rooms which provides a
lovely experience. We settled in and had a glass of wine upon arrival on the balcony areas
and were immediately greeted with Monkeys and a stunning view overlooking the plains.
Amazing...can’t wait to go back!
Quite possibly the best start to any holiday I have ever had! From the moment you arrive the
lodge staff are friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was amazing,
every meal had local dishes to try, always cooked to your liking. They also serve morning
and afternoon teas in between meals. We stayed at Sarili Lodge. The views from the lounge
and dining area are breath-taking.
Lots of new memories made in this outstanding game reserve. The knowledge and experience of our Ranger Mino, was fascinating! He made the game drive fun, serious and exciting. The Lodge and its staff were super. Felt totally spoilt from arriving to leaving! In fact, we didn’t want to leave. Will be back in December with my family to make even more memories!
