We only stayed for one night and unfortunately it rained and the wildlife stayed away from the water holes and salt lick around the lodge but the set up is great and I can well believe you would see lots of animals with a little more luck than we had. Now the lodge itself, rooms, food and staff are all... More

This was such a shame. We expected something special with the accommodation, being able to watch animals come and go to the waterhole or just graze on the grounds but with the noise of the children running up and down the walkways and people thumping down stairways it's no wonder that the wildlife stayed away. There was a mix up... More

Amazing design where wild animals e.g. elephants are passing under your hotel rooms. Definitely recommended to stay. Lots of flys around so good to be prepared. Rooms are good and clean. Food was nice and tasty. You may need to take savari two times if you are not lucky to see lions during the first one. We took the one... More

Seeing the lodge on the horizon, I was very excited to get there and explore. The room was lovely, with a great view of one of the watering holes (water buck,impala etc.) Clean, ttraditaionally decorated and quite cool (despite the soaring temps outsiode).
