What a lodge! Like no other, a rare experience in a rare location - seemingly afloat above the crater with ever-changing views from EVERY window. There is a permeating sense of luxury - with a permeating sense of Africa in the woods, colors, architecture. Sitting by the fire (prepared by our butler while we were finishing dinner) in oversized leather armchairs in the suite with a hand-carved African wood box of a beautiful assortment of quality chocolates and a glass of the finest sherry was the ultimate African moment.
The game drive into the crater was unforgettable...but returning to relax and linger at the lodge was also a highlight. Drawn baths with rose petals greeted our return from the drives - the view of the crater from the free-standing tub was unobstructed and heavenly!
This is a VERY SPECIAL PLACE.
