This lodge is surrounded by electric fencing to protect the occupants from the lions. The lions can also be moved to another camp on guest’s request. The Kings View chalets are located a short distance from the camp for privacy or Lion's Den chalets near the camp where you can enjoy the roar at close range. All units are fully equipped for self catering.

                  Dit is op die perfekte plek, met die mooiste view. Ongelukkig is die plek verwaarloos. Ons blyplek was regtig nie baie skoon nie. Die mikrogolf was vuil, en skottelgoed in die kas was nat. Dit lyk of daar 'n vrou se hand kort. Afgesien van dit, het ons lekker ontspan en die beste daarvan gemaak.

                  The swimming pool and reception area needs some attention. Not once during our stay was the pool clean (apart from it being green) I had to clean it myself since the children wanted to swim (removing cigarette stompies) from it

                  A great laid back, different in the bush experience.A bit of a frustration with entry/exit due to poor signal.Some aspects requiring attention were discussed with Daan.

                  It was a nice getaway for short duration. Not much to do and no TV in the room, which is ok if you expect and want that. Its not the most kitted out venue and facilities were basic. If you are expecting self-catering with a kitchen and a fair bit of space, then this is not for you. The walls/thatch roof do not stop sound, so you can hear your neighbours talking and visa versa. But if you are in the mood for camping but don't want to tread in dirt and have a bit more comfort then this is a good option. We had a geyser but no hot water in the shower. No aircon which would be a major problem in...
