The setting, the service, the staff and the wildlife experiences all make this our favourite safari lodge in Zimbabwe. We simply cannot go there enough. Our recent visit with a large group of wildlife enthusiasts from the USA was simply superb. Crossing the Save River by boat (no mean feat for the person doing the poling) was an experience in itself. If you are an elephant fanatic like us then this is the place to go to for some very different experiences. And the birdlife is stunning. What added to our recent visit was a day trip to the amazing Chilojo Cliffs - a truly amazing sight. Our guests loved the afternoon visit to the clinic in Mahenye Village plus the opportunity to donate footballs and a range of other goodies for the local school. Now we are planning next years adventure to Chiol. A pity we can't get there again this year.
