This lodge is excellent! Staff is extremely friendly, food is good, rooms are good and location is FANTASTIC!
The owner of the lodge, mr Heylen was extremely friendly. He invited us to his own house and we had dinner with him. When we asked him if we could do a safari in the neighbourhood he immediately said we could do a private safari on his own private land of 3000acres. He drove us around the whole morning, we had a picknick breakfast he prepared and we've seen a lot of wild animals. The hotel has a private beach of 4 kilometres..... Everything about this place is perfect. Mr Heylen and his wife are great!
