What an amazing little private game lodge. The greeting was warm, not just the first time but each time we returned from a game drive. We especially love the hot chocolate after the first evenings drive. It does get cold out there!
Philip was a knowledgeable and a highly amusing guide. Made the drives just fly by and I could get used to sundowners on the reserve with amazing sunsets behind me.
The rooms are beautifully laid out, with a private balcony if you want to sit and enjoy the ambiance of the area.
The staff are great and the meals were fab.
Definitely one to consider if you are in this area.
