‪Good stop for food and day touring‬

‪We had the opportunity to visit Mbidi Resort while in we were in the area. The restaurant in my opinion served a better variety of food and it was very tastefully prepared. The staffs were very friendly and our waiter Solly was most helpful. We enjoyed our time viewing the animals and reptiles but the most memorable one is our time spent with Maxi the baby tiger cub.‬

‪I noticed some bad reviews by members of the public. Then I saw an award from a professional body and I decided that it will go on to my bucket list.‬

‪Terrible place for animals‬
משפחה • מאי 2018
‪We came here 6 years ago and it was a lovely destination however - things have gone terribly wrong with new management. I would suspect that population control got out of hand.

Pro's
Restaurant served great food.
Animals.

Con's
Lions are in poor condition - they look sad.
Too many lions per cage.
There was the saddest looking bear trapped in a cage at the end of the reserve and it complained the whole time we were there.
2 Tigers stuck in a tiny cage.

Just sad - man - stay away. This place needs to be closed down.‬

‪It is a pretty small farm with free roaming poultry. The farm has a handful of bunnies which are very hungry, constantly looking for food handed by visitors. There is a lactating bunny mommy who has no food or hay in the little cage that holds the family of 5, including 4 baby bunnies. One of bunnies has skin infection and not sure if it is taken care of.

Besides that, it is a good experience for young children who lacks opportunities to see how a kampung looks like.‬

‪Cruel and miserable experience‬
זוגות • אוג׳ 2017
‪Disgusting - do not visit. This place is heartbreaking and backward in it's attitudes towards beautiful wildlife. From the solitary vervet monkey in a tiny enclosure to the miserable looking lions and the birds in small cages, unable to fly. We left as soon as we arrived. The term "sanctuary" is hugely misleading. This place is a zoo with awful welfare standards.‬

‪This was our 3rd visit to Mbidi Ranch. Sad to say that since our last visit it is going backwards. It is a animal sanctuary with lion and tiger but loud music is played over a speaker system which is really irritating. If people want to listen to music they will do so at home. People want to hear the animals and come to rest.
Staff looked sad and no dress code. It was hard to know who was working there and who where guests. Our unit was clean but the showers hot water tap was broken..not pleasant in the winter. Normally they had a program of activities set out for days but nothing..staff didn't even know about it.
It seems the owners are not involved in the day to day running of the Ranch and the staff are just there to do what the must.. A real shame as there is massive potential. For me it was our last visit. I will rather spend my money where owners/management care about the visitors. ‬

‪Planning on doing a little family outing, why not try Mbidi Lodge by Loskop dam.?
It is not expensive, fun to be had by all.
From seeing the lions in den by the parking, to seeing the monkeys misbehaving, to viewing the rest of the park with reptile enclosures.
The breakfast is awesome for R50.00 you get an amazing meal.‬

משפחה • יולי 2015
‪execellent day out, though the lodfe does offer accomaodation, restuarant onsite serves suberb food, also catering for vegetraian, the lodge also has a braai are and picnic area fot day visitors with a play ground, the lodge is home to lions tigers, cheetah, snakes, there is a show everyday which boasts all these animals, the trainer goes into the cage with the lions and tigers, i'm not exaggerating, if you are in the loskop dam area, please do visit, a site definitely not to be missed!‬
