                      I loved the decor and all the artworks, and the emphasis on sustainability and the use of local labour. We looked forward to supper every night as the meals were varied and delicious.I felt, though, that guests should be warned to bring various items, e.g. a torch in case the lights go out, bottled water and perhaps some snacks for the afternoon as the nearest shop is about 30km away.

                      A little gem for some P&Q.

                      I enjoyed my stay at this lodge, so I will return to it and tell others too. Thanks Rooms For Africa for the convenient booking process.
