Fabulous safari adventure with 5star hotel

Madison, Wisconsin

We had the adventure of a lifetime at this lodge. Guided by Kelly and our expert tracker Alfred we saw Leopards up close three days we were there. Lions, rhinos, elephants and zebras were in abundance. The meals were excellent and the first night we ate some exotic game that was from local farms.

Honeymoon at Lionsands

New York City, New York

The people that work for the resort made our experience. Everyone we came across was kind, knowledgeable, genuine and helpful. Especially our field guide Franna his passion for safari and his strong dedication to the company was evident. He knew every inch of the reserve and was knowledgeable in everything from the animals, birds, plants, astronomy and more. He explained things in a way that we were interested, and was excited to take us off the beaten path to show even the most difficult to find game on the reserve all while giving us the confidence that we were safe and well taken care of. Our tracker Surprise was no less amazing then Franna, they couldn’t have been a better team. Sarina and Johnathan at the front desk were great and very positive and always helpful. The the same for our butler, Wilfred was always spot on with dinner and checking in at all the right times. We appreciated having him look after our meals. We would love to come back some day, and thank all that made our honeymoon as special as it was. The only things that’s could have improved was the WiFi it was poor across the facility.
