          Had an absolutely magical experience!! The lodge had a great atmosphere, beautifully styled and furnished. Created an intimate space for guests to socialise, yet the rooms were totally private and secluded. The staff were very professional, super friendly and accommodating.

          Have visited numerous times and it is always wonderful. Ranger and food excellent. Have 3 suggestions based upon a stay in a nearby lodge: enlarge watering hole to attract more animals, wifi and mini-fridge in each cabin. Hope to return soon.

          They go off road all the time. So an occasional flat tire is absolutely normal!
