We booked a night in the Baroness Game Lodge and then a game drive the following day. We were greeted by Winnie who showed us round first and then to our room. She was most offended that I did not want help with bringing my suitcase from the car! The room had the most character of any we have stayed in and we loved the bath although we did not use it.
I particularly noticed the way the two other girls served our meal and wine. I am sure that they must have had excellent training or had been to catering college as their service was better than most of the top class restaurants that we have been too. It was a lovely touch to light the fire in the Bomas even though it was raining and a very nice treat to find our electric blanket had been put on to warm the bed.
Winnie brought us some fresh fruit for breakfast and warm toast (although there could have been a bit more bacon). We paid our bill and gave them a tip for excellent service.
It was, initially, a very wet game drive but our guide tried very hard to find the rhinos and, after the third circuit, she found the lions. She was very informative and interesting. Almost at the end of the drive, by the buffalo, she noticed we had a deflated tyre. She asked if we minded if we went back to change it, but, in compensation, gave us a lot of extra time looking a the giraffes and hippos.
In summary, an excellent attraction with superb staff.
