Perfect place to spend a relaxing holiday. Very clean, safe, quiet and friendly lodge. Food is amazing, once you try Justine's food, you wouldn't even think to try anywhere else. Eric and Justine are great hosts, staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Clara and the whole team makes you feel at home far from home. What a paradise! First visit... More

We stayed ten days and during all that time Eric and Justine and all their staff were very thoughtful and attentive hosts providing a superb service in beatiful surroundings. The view over the lake is manificent and the proximity to a golden beach with good swimming, just across a picturesque bridge over a bilong, was an added bonus. Excursions to... More

The most amazing part of the lodge is the setting of the bungalows in the incredibly well maintained garden. When oil-lamps are placed there at night to help you find the way to your room it is absolutely fairyland. The sitting area is very pleasant, even wifi with very satisfactory speed being offered (free of charge). And then the food:... More

I stayed at Esperanto with my family (parents and 4 "kids": 20-30 years old) for 4 nights. We really enjoyed it all: the friendly staff, the beautiful decorated rooms, the amazing food at the restaurant, the relaxed atmosphere and the great spot at the beach with a cabin (shelter for the wind) and bar. We especially enjoyed the food and... More

A rather belated review for Eric and the lovely Esperanto Lodge. The wife and I stayed there earlier this year. We thought the place was great with three types of water, the lake near the house, the creek that you cross to get to the sand dunes and the sea. Really lovey, also very quiet and good food. About 2... More

Eric & Justine have put together a really wonderful gem of a place with the Esperanto Lodge. If you love Africa, this is a perfect place to stay and relax. If you don't know Africa, this is a wonderful way to start the love affair! The rooms are comfortable and in a local style but to a high standard. The... More
