The staff is friendly and helpful. The dining is a bit strange because there isn't enough tables to suite every couple or group, some people had to share a table with other visitors they did not know and that isn't personal as I would prefer to have diner with my partner or group only. The flies where all over the... More

A very friendly, efficient and creative staff. A typical African decor in the natural environment of the savanna, with a nice balcony from where we could watch wild animals drinking water from a hole. Independent nice round rooms with no place to put the clothes. No internet in the lodge. Very good safaries. I would recommend it!

Super location and great staff. 2 safaris per day and a close look at many animals. Our room was cleaned every day and changed from a day layout with the mosquito nets tied back to the night configuration quite transparently. Trustworthy and helpful staff in every way.
