We stayed for one night and our rooms were clean and roomy with a comfortable bed. The lodge is staffed by very pleasant folk in what seemed like a remnant of colonial Africa. The lodging is not that far out of town, but the 20km from the airport took our driver 3 hours to traverse with the bad traffic and chaotic state of the roads. What a pity! Bar service was great as was the meal. Look out for the warthogs feeding in the morning close to the patio. Oh - beware of the step on the patio which is unmarked and a death trap in the evening light. Looking on the bright side the local hospital/clinic is nearby and the staff are sympathetic and efficient. Remember to take out travel insurance.
