What a fantastic stay! It's about 8km away from the falls, they also offer transfers to and from town/falls. The rooms were newly renovated in March 2011, and still today, offers amazing luxury and comfort. The beds were extremely comfortable, the amenities range is wide, and there is more than enough place for all your clothes in the cupboards. It offers aircon (which did not disturb us at all during the night). The best part however is the little balcony area overlooking the grounds and river. Truly relaxing after a day of sightseeing, just to sit and look at the grounds/sunset and river.
The lodge has got a buffet style dining thatch lapa. They serve breakfast (set out food such as cereal, cheeses, fruit, bread and other pastries, and then hot food and choose your own omlette and eggs) and dinner buffets, but the roomservice menu is also wonderful, with tasty food. There is also a bar area with very comfortable chairs to sit and relax in. The pool area is also lovely, with comfortable deck chairs and a poolside eating and drinking menu. The grounds are beautifully manicured, and you'll also see some animals roaming around (some monkey's and a little family of warthogs).
The staff are extremly friendly. They are very helpful and will bring you anything you need to your room and help you wherever they can. There is a activity desk, where you can also book all the activities such as bungee jumping, zip line, sunset cruises, helicopter flights (A must do!), and many more. Just note that the activities are quite expensive (but absolutely worth it), so make sure you budget for that. All the activities comes with transfers. So they will pick you up and drop you off.
Check in/out was a very hassle free, easy process, so your vacation will begin immediately.
If you are looking for a quiet, tranquil place (far enough to not be overrun by other travellers, but close enough for all the sightseeing), then I can highly recommend this lodge.
