It was raining so the road we chose from Kikopey was quite tricky with the 4x4 slipping and sliding all over the place, but quite an adventure for the kids! We chose to stay at the camp instead of the lodge and the tented rooms were very spacious with a beautiful view! The best part was the service which was... More

This attitude of helpfulness continued throughout our 5 night stay with an aim to satisfy our every need.

I have stayed at this lodge numerous times, and it never fails to impress. It has quiet, abundant nature, with excellent and unique game drives featuring a slightly different array of animals than some other locations. You can also walk around the shores of the lake. Most importantly, the staff here are excellent and dedicated to providing a relaxing, professional... More
