The accommodation was great and the food was awesome thanks to Julia and all the girls. We certainly didn’t go hungry while we were at RKL. Thanks to Felicity, Alexis,... More

Very nice lodge, rustic and comfortable. Staff were lovely and made us feel at home and looked after us extremely well. For me personally there was just too much bread and meat on the menu, that is a personal preference, but the food was extremely good. If you like steaks, they were done to perfection !!
