We stayed 3 nights in this beautiful secluded setting overlooking the river and being woken up to the sound of Hippos roaring, and watching giant crocodiles wallowing, in the morning. The newly refurbished lodges were superb and what one should expect for the cost.The staff were attentive and unobtrusive. Game drives were conducted by Thomas who is very experienced and a fountain of knowledge. Gonarezhou National Park is a wild place and very different for instance to Hwange, it is much more exciting as one never knows what may be 'around the corner'. The four of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and will return. It would be interesting to see the difference one the rains have come. It is particuarly encouraging that this lodge takes and active role in the community, and this should be the way forward for tourism in this kind of area.
