Visited not so long back. Warren and his staff were very nice and hospitable to my friends and I. Despite the good things about this place, the 'meal plan' which they recommend (unsurprisingly) is a total let down for the price you are paying, I expected a lot more than just pasta and salad, and toast for breakfast. I would... More

We spent six days at Safari Lodge as guests of the charming and knowledgable Warren Francis. Our goal was relaxation by learning to kiteboard and hopefully diving. Our first day on the island (which is remote and accessible by boat), Warren had us out with kites doing body drags and trying out the boards. With his little yellow boat chasing... More

What a total let down............... from the moment we checked in to the time we got out of there it was full of let downs here are just a few. 1.We booked a "beach front Bure" and on arrival noticed it was beside where they burn the resorts trash. 2. I was expecting "hot water and modern facilities" as stated... More

We stayed there for a couple of days and went on a dive with them. The room was good but the bugs everywhere!. We payed for the 3x a day meals as there is no shop to buy food on the whole island, so it's the only thing you can eat at all out there! The food was highly overpriced... More

We've spent one week at the safari lodge and it was an amazing time. We chose it because of the wideranged sport offer and we weren't disappointed! We did our open water course with michelle and she could totally show us why diving is an awesome thing. All three of us enjoyed every dive and we had a lot of... More

We had a great trip in a relaxed atmosphere with great people! As a hesitant kite boarder I felt I was in capable hands and had a great time. The accommodation was fantastic and suited to our needs, a great balance between some get away time and socialising! There was plenty to do that didn't involve kites if you are... More

Just a few days back from a kite trip at Safari Lodge! The guys at Safari Lodge will provide you a lot of personal attention and learned me kiteboarding in no time. Day programs were discussed regularly and tailored to your needs. My experience has been very positive and the team does do their utmost best to help you (fixing... More

Safari Lodge has a laid back vibe to supplement all of the more exciting activities they offer. The staff are laid back but attentive, and make for a great stay. Diving with Safari Lodge is excellent and the reefs are incredible.

If you are going to kitesurf I trully recommend Nanui-ra Island but don't ever go to Safari Lodge. You can stay in the others accommodations in the island which you don't have to pay a totally over priced package. I made a mistake to book online for my accommodation only and when I got to the wharf and the rude... More
