Reviewed January 18, 2009

Had a great time at the Safari Lodge. The owners were so accommodating and catered to our every whim. We really enjoyed the friendlyness and the overwhelming welcoming from Trish and Ray into their magnificent home. Ray even organized and escorted my husband on a fishing trip which he enjoyed immensaly. They truly made our stay in the deep south a pleasurable visit.

Reviewed January 15, 2009

We stayed at Safari Lodge (in the Leopard Room) for 3 nights and absolutely loved it.

The home has been restored to the grandeur of the 1800's yet with modern facilities. The best of both world's! It's obviously been a labour of love for the owners Ray and Trish and this is reflected in the feeling of the place.

The bed was so comfortable and cosy that it was hard to get up in the mornings, except for the fact that a hearty cooked breakfast beckoned us in the dining room downstairs.

Ray and Trish were very friendly and extremely knowledgeable on the Southland area, offering many tips on places to see while in Invercargill.

We found Safari Lodge was a comfortable walking distance to the town centre,bars and restaurants.
