Although we didn't expect it, we saw the big 5.My sister and brother-in-law came over to visit from Brisbane while my husband turned 60 and we all had a family reunion. The owner of the lodge was friendly and helpful during our stay. The bedding was fresh and clean and we truly cannot complain about anything.

We had an AMAZING time at Idwala! We couldn't have asked for better value for money. The house and all the extras were exceptional! Only one complaint - the weekend were way to short!! Will definitely recommend it!
