The game drives with the very knowledgeable guides were simply phantastic, whatching those beautiful animals from so close was very impressive. What a pity that we already had to leave... More

I spent a couple of days, we had excellent feeling, fantastic game drives in very relaxing atmosphere. The lodge has an extraordinary fashion in a colonial style, rooms very comfortable and lobby very large; outside setting very nice. I want be back as soon as I can.
