Words don’t come close to describing this place. myself and my fiance(more about that later) her sister and her partner went for 4 nights at the start of november and from the very start we were just overwhelmed with the hospitality, the service and the friendliness of the place. you are made to feel so welcome by every one. Robbie the owner is a gentle giant with such knowledge and respect of the animals around him its amazing. we were privileged to be brought out by him for the four days of our trip,where we came so close to lions ( especially big boy, robbies favourite lion) elephants, zebra, giraffe and so many others im still going through my photos.back to pondoro itself, the chalets are luxury, i’ve been to many nice places in the world and this is right up there! every night the beds are turned down and the weather reports and a little sweet are left on your pillow.the food is amazing and cooked with such care and attention to detail by liza the chief and hostess. One of the purposes of my trip was to get engaged to my long suffering girlfriend.it was meant to happen later on on the trip but pondoro is so romantic and magical i just knew it had to be there. So after getting down on bended knee on the balcony of one of the chalets, beening watched by a mean looking croc and two hippos in the river witch flow’s by pondoro, robbie took us to a look out point in kruger where we watched the sun going down with a few glasses of champagne and afterwards liza had cooked a beautiful meal and served it to us in the wine cellar ( so romantic !!!!) All in all a perfect end to a perfect day! To sum things up, YOU HAVE TO GO TO PONDORO!!!!! it’s the perfect size not over crowded and the attention to detail and the care your given is the best ever !!!!!!
