The location is fantastic and airport pick up and drop off is great after a long flight. It was clean but very old in need of repairs. We could hardly sleep due to the really bad blocked flue of the fire place. The whole house was full of smoke.
We arrived after a 14 hr flight at 5pm and had to get another flight at 2am. Rob picked us up which is part of the deal he has. But he also changed just enough Rand for us to pay an Uber car. Plus he arranged the Uber car to come when we wanted it. We really depended on him and…
It is shoestring bit this is as it says. rob was very helpful and welcoming, with a fire on when we got there and efficient pick up and drop off from the airport. Really handy location and we would stay again!
Our double room was mouldy and smelled very bad. The bed linen was very old and ripped. We put our own sleeping bag on top so that we wouldnt have to touch it. Worst accomodation during our whole trip! Thats a pity because the owner is very very nice and helpful...
The lodge is 5 min driving from the airport and Rob can take you from / to there in no time. He is nice, pleasant and responsible. The lodge located in quite corner of the city, so if you want a quite evening without all the city noise - it's perfect.
"I got a private room with an ensuite, and it was definitely worth it!"
"Call ahead and rob will bend over backwards for you"
"choose twin beds, the bunk beds look sketchy"
"There seems to be only one ensuite room so you would need to book ahead to get that."
"There is a dorm available, or private rooms. We like the outside room for repacking after our month long safaris!"
