My partner and I had 4 nights at Pondoro Lodge and it was one of the highlights that we have ever experienced in our life. Robbie and Leesa were fabulous hosts and could not do enough for us. The food was sensational, the service was amazing and overall nothing could be faulted. We were there for New Years Eve and was one of the best New Years we have ever had. Leesa,Robbie and their staff went to extreme lengths to make sure our stay was something to be remembered. We were fortunate enough to see the BIG FIVE which was also an amazing highlight. Accomadation was well themed for the location.
