I should have written this much soon as I stayed with my family in February we had 2 Msenge lodges no.1 & 2 and they were absolutely fabulous with our oversized bathroom plus outside shower we were spoilt for choice. The plunge pool on our patio was great and made even more special being able to watch the warthogs playing in the distance and our frequent monkey visitors who were very cheeky.
The food was plentiful and very good, service sometimes a little slow but everyone was so courteous and friendly it more than made up for it. The bar was great and we had some really nice nights in there with whatever ranger was on bar duty.
I have been on safari before in Kenya and although this time it was on a reserve it was still as good in a slightly different way, we found it a wonderful experience made even better if that was at all possible by our fantastic ranger Craig.
I was so impressed by the whole experience that I am hoping to book my daughter her family and friends in next year.
I would like to say a very big thank you to all the staff for making our stay so memorable.
