They do not offer too many attractions, but you do not need them. You come there for safari games and amazing views. You can enjoy drink on the terrace with animals, which come to water,... More

Had a most enjoyable stay in this lodge. It offers great views over the park from the rooms, restaurant and bar. The room was clean and comfortable and provided everything we needed. Dinner was excellent although staff could have been more attentive.
