“A dream come true!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

We stayed here as 2 families (4 kids, 2 grandmas and 4 parents). The Lodge is perfectly situated in front of a waterhole where Charlie the Hippo will gaze at you lovingly every day. He will also pop out for his afternoon tea and game of hide & seek with the rhinos right in front of the Lodge. Other animals regularly came wandering by - giraffes, gnus, wild pigs, zebras, impalas, etc.
The Lodge has 5 suites which are arranged in bungalows either side of the main building, each one built like its own cocoon of privacy and comfort. Stuart & his team look after every single detail from start to finish. A special mention for Maria's cooking which is to die for!
Stuart's passion for every single living creature really brings the Bush to life - he provides very clear explanations of how every species interacts and their habits. When on a game drive, he stops for everything - nothing is missed - from elephants to scorpions & millipedes.
We experienced and learnt so much during our week at Metsi Lodge, we loved every minute of it - I look dreamily at my photos and can't wait to return!
