My wife and two boys (12 & 10) have just returned from 7 nights at the Berkeley River Lodge; a wonderful time had by all. The location itself is simply magnificent with the lodge perched high on the dunes overlooking the sea and the river, surrounded by perfect white sand and dramatic red escarpments.
My major concern on a 7 night stay was whether or not there would be enough to do, however come the end I had to pry the family away, my wife in particular keen to extend the stay. We did a myriad of activities from fishing, beach and river cruises and a sensational day out in the helicopter. At all times in every activity we were kept thoroughly entertained.
The meals were a surprising highlight. Given the remoteness of the area and access to general goods the meals were superb. I travel a lot and eat in fine restaurants and the meals we experienced at Berkeley were up there with the best. Given one of my boys is allergic to nuts and the other wheat, Paul in the kitchen is to be truly praised.
As in any Resort or Hotel, what really completes the experience is the people. The team at Berkeley were simply the best and we quickly felt like spoilt friends. They are completely relaxed and this in turn helps you unwind. They love and care for the Kimberley and this also shows through in their knowledge of the area.
Thanks again all of you; we look forward to seeing you again.
