What a find this little lodge was! Absolutely perfect. I went just for a one night get away, needing a bit of downtime, peace and quiet and that's exactly what I got. The rooms are very clean and well appointed, with a private outside seating area looking out over the beautiful landscape and the big beds are very cosy and comfortable. In a region which suffers from water and power shortages, both are handled extremely well and the hot shower in the evening was very welcoming.
The food was excellent - beautifully cooked and presented and I really cannot fault the service. The staff are so friendly, smiling and welcoming and attentive to your every need.
The grounds are beautiful and very well looked after, with lots of natural trees (many of them labeled) which attract the many species of birds. There are many places to just sit and enjoy the natural surroundings, with a boardwalk leading to a "tearoom" which is a great place to sit and watch the world go by.
In my opinion the lodge offers extremely good value for money when compared with other similar establishments in the area and it's great to know that the profits are all going to help really valuable community projects. I could have stayed there a lot longer and will definitely return, even though the access road is very bumpy and dusty! Well worth every bump.
