My family and I just spent 3 nights at Makweti Lodge and I wanted to let the world know what a wonderful experience we had. Other than the attention to detail and high quality of service, the highlight was undoubtedly our guide - Test. What a professional: friendly, knowledgeable and intelligent. We learnt, we laughed and we ate! I was there with my two sons (10 and 13 years old) and other members of my family including teenagers and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The food was excellent and the staff went out of their way to cater for all our different needs. My only criticism would be that the rooms are cold and need more heating in both bedrooms and bathrooms but other than that they are clean and attractive. The breakfasts were particularly outstanding and we enjoyed the picnic lunches which were beautifully packed in special lunch boxes.
I would highly recommend this lodge to anyone who wants to learn and experience the wonders of safari without compromising on their creature comforts!
