          We thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The kids loved stoking Gambit the giraffe.

          We loved our two night stay at Mansfield game reserve. The views are unsurpassed and the peace and quiet is so soothing for the soul. The Eagle's Nest cottage comes highly recommended and the family loved taking long walks in the reserve. A great stay with friendly staff. We will be back. Thank you Mansfield.

          Enjoyed my stay at the platform. Though I was indoors and did not take part in any outdoor activity, I will visit again and recommend Mansfield to anyone seeking adventure and wishing to get away for quietness.
