NO NO NO!!!!

Benguerra is a lovely lodge that is enjoyed by countless people. My parents spent 5 nights there in December 2006 in the honeymoon chalet for their 30th anniversary and really loved it!

The acocmadation was superb - they did have their own pool - the food was delicious and the only complaint was that they felt like they had put on 5 kg's when they got back! The diving was great (4 dives) and the staff were lovely and very attentative...

My mom also had a number of massages and said they were some of the best she has ever had - she is a qualified massage therapist herself.

My parents are well travelled and stay in a range of acocmadation from 5* Safari Lodges to doing walking safaris in Zambia to barging in France.

I have seen a number of other lodges I have stayed in get slated by one or two unhappy person and it seems to cause a total furor!

Why do people always love to believe the worst!??!!? Bad news always travels faster than good for some strange reason! If in doubt contact the lodge and ask them to send you copies of their guestbook or such Like!

Try and keep an open mind and have a wonderful honeymoon
