We are a couple of Belgium, 66 years old, living south of France since 1984. We loved Otter's Den, very calm, sympathy of personel, very very interesting bush walk around the island, nice food, and very helpfull people to arrange, by mail, by advance, all our needs and ideas. Lodge very pleasant. Balloning is obviously a very nice experience.

Otters Den is an unbelievable nice and beautiful place. When you cross the bridge - and for the first time it is a little scary when you are afraid of heights, but worth it – you enter a little paradise (a little Eden in a hectic world). Due to the Blyde river I think it is always green and because there are only 5 lodges you get total privacy. The owners do everything to make you feel comfortable and you can totally relax. When you are there the rest of the world does not exist (and you just want to stay). At Otters Den they try and succeed to feel you at home. If you want to do things they can arrange a lot for you and if sometime things you want to do are fully booked they come up with alternatives. No problem. But just staying there is a joy on it’s own. You feel totally at home and feel a little sad to leave. We can and will recommend it to everybody, but hope Otters Den will stay a little secret so not to many people will want to go there and the ones who do can enjoy it as unworldly place where you feel privileged to stay.

In one word: Fantastic!!!!
We had a warm welcome. All the meals were great and the lodge was, as all other things, just wonderful.

Beautiful environment, neat and clean lodges, excellent food. The river bridge is stunning, so are the views. Marie-Tinka and family and staff did everything to make us feel welcome and at home.
The bush walk was amazing and one of the highlights of our stay.
