On the way one may enjoy wildlife especially cheeky baboons ready to welcome u if found keeping your belongings carelessly (lol if you know what I mean).The... More

We spent two nights here January 11-12 with Globus Tours. Staff was over the top to ensure our comfort and security (from the animals) needs were met. Very warm and friendly people. The lodge was very clean and the meals were delicious. Nice grounds to walk and a welcoming pool after a hot day on safari.

We were greeted with eucalyptus hand towels which was wonderful after a long day of driving from Nairobi! Check in was done in a conference room & went smoothly.

Stayed here with my very big family and I have to say it was worth every penny. It's tucked away in the middle of nowhere but that gives it proximity to all the wild animals. I would recommend it to anyone out for a safari and of course, just to relax

A beautiful setting in the midst of the desert - an oasis that is so beautifully built with all the natural features at their best. A very quiet and relaxing atmosphere. Beautiful rooms overlooking the river. Sounds of the natural spring water that is running around is so calming to the mind. The experience to see crocodiles from so close... More
