The rooms are of a good size decorated in traditional african style and from our window we looked out over the chobe river.The food and drink was good and varied served by friendly and helpfull staff. The game viewing is OUTSTANDING ,on our first day we saw impala, hippo cape buffalo, elephants (too many to count ) wart hog and leopard. Our guide was Tracy who handled our 4x4 like an expert and was full of infomation on the area and the wildlife,spotting animals long before we could see them.This was our first safari and we was'nt sure how close animals came , we soon realised they came very close indeed so some great photo's are easily taken.The game drives start early in the morning then its back for breakfast, we then did a river safari spotting crocs ,fish eagles , hippo's and even an elephant swimming the river to get to the Namibian side.We got back to the lodge for a superb lunch and a hour or so free time then was served high tea before setting off again to see more elephants, buffalo, lion, and many more animals.After a sundowner drink in the bush we returned back to the lodge for a shower, change and a well deserved drink and a beatifull dinner.Because the lodge is in the gamepark you do not have to drive to spot the wildlife - as soon as you drive out of the lodge you start seeing animals.We will never forget our time here, the staff,the sunsets and most of all the game.
