We stayed here for one night in February 2010 during our Virgin Holidays Safari.
We arrived quite late at the lodge, so this will be quite a short review. Set in lovely grounds we had an excellent buffet style dinner. Good choice of meats, fish, potatoes and rice, very good service and really pleasant restaurant with great service in nice surroundings.
This lodge is quite near the lake, and has some of its own wildlife. We were able to stroll through the grounds and see a giraffe, some zebra and in the distance some hippos in the lake (binoculars required).
The evening was spent sitting on the veranda sipping cocktails – very civilised!
There was some fun when a couple of the waiters said their hippos had come in for the night, and they took us to see them. What we saw were just vague shapes in the distant woods – impossible to what they were - and when the waiters started giggling we concluded this was just their way of having fun with the tourists.
Rooms were really good. There were four rooms in each lodge, arranged around a central sitting room. The rooms were large with spacious bathroom with shower. No mosquito nets but they had tablets burning, and we had no trouble at all.
Breakfast was in the same restaurant as dinner, and served buffet style. Pretty much the usual – eggs, omelettes, bacon, sausage, toast, fruit cereal etc. Nice coffee.
This was a very nice lodge, clean and tidy with great staff. We would happily have spent another night or two there.
