We have a couple of questions about Idube Game Lodge and are hoping someone who has stayed there within the last year or two can answer for us. We are planning a trip for November at the end of the dry season and would like to hear about experiences of the hide at Idube. I have read most all the reviews for the lodge and the hide is not mentioned. Specifically, can you walk to the hide and use it anytime time during the day? Did you see animals or birds and have good opportunities for taking photographs from the hide?
We will be staying in the standard Safari chalets. How many people from the standard chalets do they put in a game drive vehicle if the lodge is full? On our first trip to Sabi Sands we stayed at a lodge that put 10 people from the standard chalets in a vehicle, while the vehicles with the luxury units would have only 2 or 4 people in them. We hope to avoid the 2nd class seating for the game drives this time.
