Despite the last awesome owner passed away, Martin and his sister have kept the spirit of friendly atmosphere and take care of their customers, do not miss the barbecue in the evening ! We will definitely come back to this place ;).

Clean basic accommodation and good communal facilities, with a very helpful and friendly reception. The only problem we experienced was the soft uneven mattress on the bed in the downstairs en suite bedroom. We will definitely stay here again.

As a backpacker owner myself, I popped in here just to meet the owner when passing through town, but ended up staying the night because I fell absolutely in love with the place. The owner has put so much effort into the place, and has set an example of what all backpackers should aspire to. The rooms? Beautiful and well... More

We stayed here overnight to break our journey from Mozambique and it was perfect as an overnight stay. The pool was a welcome sight and the rooms were clean and affordable. Dave was very friendly and helpful.

I wanted to see Kruger whilst I was in South Africa and I couldn't really justify the cost of some of the safaris as i had planned to go on a trip through zambia anyway. My hostel in CT, capetown backpackers told me to go and stay here and... More

We stayed here for just one night. We stayed in a cabin, but it was very old and little bit dirty. It is more like a garden house for storage tools and that kind of things, but not for sleeping. Pay less more and choose for a double ensuite, then you will get much much better for your money. The... More

I have traveled to Mozambique for the past 10 years and have stayed over at the lodge every time I go to Mozambique. My family and group was received in a way that you feel comfortable and immidiately at home.The owner Dave had all our requests ready and made one of our group's birthday special. Thanks for your excellent service.

We were staying at the lodge over the December period. I would not recommend this lodge as we experienced the following. Rooms were dirty with old chewing gum still stuck against the walls, the linen and bedding was terrible, one bed was broken and completely worn out . The actual mattresses were so thin you could feel the holes and... More
