We stayed here for the final 3 days of our honeymoon and it was absolutely perfect. The service was excellent, the lodge beautiful and the food fantastic. The manner in which the game reserve was run; really shone through. Thomas (management) was a very attentive host and always ensured the guests were happy. Our game drives were the best we've experienced (having been on 2 other safari holidays). Freedom and Ringo (our ranger / tracker) were more than we could have wished for, we saw all of the Big 5 and their knowledge and experience was priceless. Our room (spa suite) was perfect, very clean, original design with a walk in shower, balcony over looking the bush and spacious. We also visited the spa which was pure luxury and a definite for couples! I could not fault this amazing lodge.
