“What a place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2012

Six nights here was soooooooo relaxing! Staff and management were always on the ball, going that extra bit for us. Staff singing Happy Birthday in Zulu was a bonus. New years eve was a special occasion too. Wildlife abounded. Fish bit. Beautiful country. I have to go back!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2011

this lodge really caters well for fishermen - but wives/ "non fishers" could spend all day watching game, reading a book , swimming, chilling etc at the lodge - the views are stunning accommodation fairly rustic - mvubu lodge is slightly more up market - both are so reasonable- excellent value for money

Room Tip: if you like ethnic stay here - if you like white crisp crisp linen stay at mvubu

Thank you to Chris, Mientjie, Patrick, Gerrit and Martha for your attentive service. Alfred your broccoli salad is define! We stayed over for 4 nights on our way to Mabibi. Will highly recommend this lodge for leasure, tiger fishing and game viewing. Saw in excess of 20 hippos in the river, many crocs sleeping on the banks of the river, Will defenitely be back.

Room Tip: All the challets have a river view, the familiy units do not have the view
