We had very high expectations from reading reviews and seeing photos of Sarova saltlick online, thinking that it looked amazing. I feared that we might be disappointed, but we were not. Actually the lodge was even better than we could have possibly imagined. I would go as far as saying that it is the most memorable place (in a good... More

We had an excellent stay here! On arriving at the lodge you are welcomed by elephants as the water hole surrounds the sitting area... amazing! The staff were very friendly and accommodative. The food was very good too! The cream of the trip was when we saw an elephant chasing lions(2 lionesses and 3 cubs) from our room. Loud trumpeting... More

We upgraded at the last minute whilst on the Jambo Ziwani Safari booked through Thompson as part of a package honeymoon.

After reading most of the reviews here I was really looking forward to spending 3 nights here. The room was clean but was really musty and the first thing I did upon arrival was opening the window. The mosquito net was also riddled with holes and fighting with the mosquitoes seemed to be a constant activity in the night. The... More
