I really enjoyed this experience - from the monkeys in the trees, to the interesting lectures, and friends I made. The food was plentiful and good. It’s drivable to many fascinating places, although take note if you’re American that you’ll be on the wrong side of the road. The Chol Hamoed evenings were especially fun and themed. Most of the guests were South African. Hotel staff was lovely. The organized trips were not terribly organized, but it was good to have company, and the yummy box lunches they sent with us made up for it. Learn about safety precautions In the airport (lock/wrap luggage and watch it like a hawk), streets (don’t carry a purse) and safari (don’t get too close to animals that can step on your car) before you go. The location is remote, so you can’t count on ubers from there, and they recommend a local car service that comes, umm, when it comes.. There is a nice hotel in Jewish Joburg (Genesis) that is above a grocery with kosher-take out and a bagel store if you need a place to stay the night you come in.
