Highlights included Albert's homecooked dinners seated outside listening to hippos, Oriel and Alan's humour and interesting conversations, having a local beer in the viewing tower overlooking the zambezi river and drives into town spotting animals on the way. All tours were booked promptly and the lodge offers a village tour which is unique and very eye-opening.
I would recommend selecting the Chobe day trip, helicopter ride over the falls and village visit.
Things some people may not like (but didn't bother us) would be that the rooms are simple and tastful but not luxurious, and the property is isolated being 20 min drive to town and 35 min to the falls.
