Mooi maar sal nie weer gaan nie.

Dis ‘n bitter mooi plek in die hartjie van die bos. Hulle kombuis en skoonmaak-personneel saam met hulle studente is uitstekend. Die hartseer kom in dat hulle onder andere sê daar is ‘n Jacuzzi maar daar word nie gesê dis slegs deel van die spa nie. Personeel se reëlings stem nie ooreen nie. En die algemene goed kom voor as te veel moeite. As jy in die tente bly dan het jy geen yskas en geen braai-area nie, so al sou jy self wou kos maak is dit nie 'n opsie nie want ook nie vir jou aangedui word nie. Dit voel van die kantoor mense se kant dat as jy nie elke dag groot geld spandeer nie, is jy nie veel vir hulle nie. En alles word heeltyd uitgestel a.g.v wildvang ens. Baie mooi plek, vriendelike studente, skoonmaak en kombuispersoneel. Maar vir die geld wat mens spandeer verwag mens dieselfde moeite van die ander personeel ook. Sal nie sommer weer terugkom nie. Die kantoormense se organisasie is ook pateties. Jy kan nie jou huisie kies nie, dit word sommer net gegee. En as jy weet dinge soos ‘n wildjag of -skuif moet gebeur, moet dan nie laat mense hier kom vakansie hou nie en moet ook dan nie goed soos 'n wildrit aanbied en heeltyd skuif nie. Probleme by jou huisie word aangemeld en dit word nie herstel nie, daar word ook nie opgevolg om te hoor of alles reg is nie. En om in en uit te kom moet mens die kantoor bel. Maar daar is amper nooit syn by die hek nie. Daar is hek klokkies, maar dit werk nie.

Nice but won't go again.

It's a very beautiful place in the heart of the forest. Their kitchen and cleaning staff along with their students are excellent. The sadness comes in that, among other things, they say there is a Jacuzzi but it is not said that it is only part of the spa. Staff arrangements do not match. And the general stuff comes across as too much effort. If you stay in the tents then you have no fridge and no braai area, so even if you wanted to cook yourself it is not an option because it is not indicated for you either. It feels from the office people's side that if you don't spend big every day, you are not much to them. And everything is constantly postponed due to game hunting etc. Very nice place, friendly students, cleaning and kitchen staff. But for the money one spends one expects the same effort from the other staff as well. Won't be coming back again. The office people's organization is also pathetic. You can't choose your house, it's just given. And if you know that things like a game hunt or move must happen, then don't let people come here for a holiday and don't offer things like a game drive and move all the time. Problems at your cottage are reported and they are not repaired, nor is there a follow-up to find out if everything is OK. And to get in and out you have to call the office. But there is hardly ever his at the gate. There are gate bells, but they don't work.

Shelanti Game Reserve 's response

Goeiemore Anika, vertrou dat dit goed gaan. Ons is regtig jammer om te hoor dat julle verblyf by Shelanti nie aangenaam was nie. Die jacuzzi is nie net deel van die spa nie, teen n addisionele bedrag kon julle gebruik gemaak het van die jacuzzi. Julle het julle eie verblyf gekies en daar word gestipuleer wat die beskikbaarheid is, as julle wou skuif sou ons dit met graagte vir julle gedoen het. Daar is aan julle verduidelik hoekom die wildsrit uitgestel is en ons was ongelukkig besig met wild skuif en die weer het ook nie lekker saam gespeel vir die wildsrit nie. Vir veiligheid word die hek klokkie al vir jare nie gebruik daarom moet die kantoor gebel word sodat ons die hek kan oopmaak omdat dit met 'n kamera gemonitor word om te sien wie inkom, soos julle self gesien het dit is 2.5km vanaf die kantoor af. Ons vra onverskoning vir die slegte diens en sal dringend daaraan aandag gee.
Vriendelike groete

Wegbreek na 'n lang grendeltyd.

Ons was baie opgewonde oor ons wegbreek naby aan ons huis maar tog ver in die natuur. Ons het lank gesoek na n plek waar ons op 'n wildrit kan gaan waar daar olifante ens is. Met ons arrivering is ons verwittig dat hulle 'short staff' is en ons nie gaan kan help met 'n wildsrit nie, die lodge is ook nie oop vir selfry ritte nie. Baie teleurgesteld, juis oor dit die primêre invloed op ons keuse was om by Shelanti in te boek. Die aand met ete, was daar nie die regte hoeveelheid eetgerei nie, asook geen water. Die waterprobleem het die persoon op bystand vinnig uitgesorteer. Ons verstaan volkome dat die pandemie dinge moeilik maak, maar dan moet gaste vooraf verwittig word.

Breakaway after a long lock time.

We were very excited about our getaway close to our home yet far away in nature. We have been looking for a long time for a place where we can go on a game drive where there are elephants etc. Upon our arrival, we were informed that they were 'short staffed' and would not be able to help us with a game drive, nor is the lodge open for self-drive drives. Very disappointed, precisely because it was the primary influence on our choice to book with Shelanti. The evening with dinner, there was not the right amount of cutlery, as well as no water. The water problem was quickly sorted out by the person on assistance. We fully understand that the pandemic makes things difficult, but then guests must be notified in advance.

Ons was aangenaam verras - dit het alle verwagtinge oortref.

Ons as groep vriende (met motorfietse) toer baie, en was aangenaam verras met Shelanti. Vir seker een van die beste plekke waar ons nog ooit gebly het. Die akkommodasie was uitstekend, netjies, mooi, maar nie oordrewe sodat mens ongemaklik voel nie. Die personeel is uiters behulpsaam en vriendelik en niks was te veel moeite nie. Die plaas is baie mooi en daar is volop wild, en ons het die rit na die jaghuisie en terug, terdeë geniet. Hier was absoluut geen rede om enigsins te kla nie! Baie dankie!

We were pleasantly surprised - it exceeded all expectations.

We as a group of friends (with motorcycles) tour a lot, and were pleasantly surprised with Shelanti. For sure one of the best places we have ever stayed. The accommodation was excellent, neat, beautiful, but not exaggerated so that you feel uncomfortable. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The farm is very beautiful and there is plenty of game, and we thoroughly enjoyed the drive to the hunting lodge and back. There was absolutely no reason to complain at all! Thank you very much!
