We liked the lounge area in your courtyard. What we didn’t very much appreciate was the tinned fruit at breakfast. This was a real disappointment and not done in a country which has so much fresh and delicious fruits everywhere you go! The safe in our room was not attached to the wall, so not much good. The rooms were very small and there were no international TV channels. Considering the price we paid, we thought the value for money wasn’t very good.

We had an amazing time in Forest Lodge. We arrived a little bit earlier than the check-in time and still let us stay in our rooms. The place is really pretty and close to the main amenities. The breakfast was good too.

The ladies at reception are wonderful and friendly and very helpful. They made our stay all the more happier.The wonderful ladies at reception even allowed us to use the lodge kitchen to make our own dinners. The lodge is new and has a beautiful garden. Hippos grazing outside the lodge made the evenings more special.Thank you all. We will definitely be back.
