Great lodge with beautiful accoutrements. Delicious food, good service, great views. The guides were excellent and the safari rides so exciting and fun.m the lodge is modern and exceptionally clean and spacious. We had a wonderful spa afternoon. Our clinicians were professional and kind. The gym could have had an elliptical.

It's a good lodge and build in almost like underground location. Meals are very good and facilities are excellent. Not a good location to see many animals. The lady guide was very knowledgeable and very co- operative.

Picked this as our first safari experience and we were not disappointed. Great service from a knowledgeable and caring staff. Sheldon, our ranger/guide, went the extra mile to help me increase my knowledge of photography. Came away with amazing shots, an appreciation for the awesomeness of nature, and a series of up-close-and-personal encounters with the animal world. Thanks to Sheldon,...

This is really a very special Luxury Lodge. Not everybody's taste, but if you are looking for modern luxury in the bush, than this is where you must go. One of the Highlights was our lady ranger, Eve. She is just out of this world and has a very special and elegant way of showing you around in the bush....
