We have returned from another visit to Shanzu - our fourth in 24 months and for the second time stayed at Petuscha Garden Lodge.
We were there for just over five weeks at Christmas 2006 and returned this May for a further three weeks and are already booked for this Christmas! This is a quiet family run lodge of about 10 rooms set in secure private grounds overlooked only by trees and shrubs. Overlooking the large swimming pool, there is a choice of two breakfast areas where we enjoyed the sounds of African bird calls and song in the early mornings. There is private access to the adjacent Cha-Cha Restaurant for drinks and meals during the day and we had some brought to our room at no extra cost. I was pleased to see that modern rooms safes have been installed since our last visit. We found the staff very friendly and are now on first name terms with them. We will be back. Jacana John
