We were there in December 2014 and the experience was phenomenal, the underground tunnel leading to the watering hole was one of the best experiences I have had as you come barely less than a meter to the animals. The staff were very friendly and the game drive was awesome. I would definitely recommend it to lovers of nature and... More

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
