Start TestimonialEverything at The Homestead was wonderful! The accommodations were very luxurious. Our ranger, Albert, was very knowledgeable and we had a great time with him on our safaris, despite the fact that it was raining for most of the time we were there. Audry, the chef and hostess, was also wonderful! We all enjoyed the delicious food she prepared for us. She was very accommodating to the special needs of our group (1 vegetarian and 2 lactose intolerant). All of my friends said that the Homestead exceeded their expectations and were impressed with my find! Thank you for helping to arrange this experience for us! I will definitely recommend your services if I know anyone else planning a trip to South Africa.End Testimonial
