"I firstly want to thank the Rooms for Africa team for their awesome service. I was really desperate for accommodation for myself and newly wedded wife and taking into consideration that it was peak season and that I had to book a room for the same day; and also that the room that I initially booked became unavailable; the Rooms for Africa team managed to make a plan and still get me an alternative room confirmed and booked in a matter of minutes. The room that we eventually got was so perfect for our needs and we really loved the fact that it was isolated and peaceful. The surroundings was breath-taking and facilities at the lodge was perfect. The staff was so friendly and professional and made us feel so welcome and special. We will defiantly go to Tala Private Game Reserve again and will recommend it to family and friends."
