I had a most satisfactory stay at Arathusa recently. The room I was in (#9, just a standard room) was quite large, and the bed was very comfortable, with plenty of hot water. The grounds of the lodge were well maintained. Chef Malcolm is a great asset for Arathusa - I love his passion for food and his enthusiasm for coming up with good menus. Most of the food I had at Arathusa was excellent (the most memorable item was the leg of impala). The game drives were all good - our guide Armand, was quite aggressive in getting off road to find us good sightings, including one of two lions taking turns munching on a buffalo. The staff at the lodge is very thoughtful. They went all out in decorating the bed and bathroom for my aunt on the night of her birthday. There were also meals served out in the open around a bonfire at the end of evening game drives from time to time.
Overall, I had an excellent stay at Arathusa.
