Great view, great food, saw four of big five (only Buffalo missing). Game viewing was not easy due to long grass, but the scenery is very interesting and we enjoyed the game drives immensely, very natural and unspoilt, not commercialized. The atmosphere at the lodge is very relaxed and friendly and all the staff were great.

Mark and I stayed for three nights and wished it could have been longer. The lodge has wonderful views, the accommodation was immaculate. Relaxing in the bath with a G&T after a game drive was an absolute joy. Wikas was our guide for the game drives and his knowledge of the animals and bush was incredible. We were extremely well hosted by Carmen (also a very competent first aider). All the staff were friendly and the food fantastic. I really don't think I can give this lodge enough praise......the whole experience was excellent.
