We stayed at Tongabezi for 3 nights whilst on our honeymoon.
We were expecting luxury & it was not. We had just come from an amazing lodge in South Africa but even so luxury is stretching it.
Yes it is unique, the two rooms we stayed in the Tree House & the Honeymoon house had beautiful views of the river but it just didn't quite cut it in terms of quality of bedding, bathroom products, towels & general upkeep of the rooms.
The food was quite good.
Staff whilst eager to please & tried to be helpful but were not particularly apt at explaining how the lodge ran/what drink selections there were, how dinner seating arrangements worked etc.
It's a lovely spot on the river but I'm sure for the price you could find better value for money.
