My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the very special BBT Lodge recently when we were on holiday in South Africa. We had a wonderful break in such peaceful surroundings and our hosts could not be more accommodating. The food and service were of the highest quality and the king size bed was extremely comfortable. I have special dietary requirements and lots of additional thought was put into the delicious food I was served. We also enjoyed a romantic sunset and meal for two up on one of the outer decks under a starlit African sky. We would highly recommend a stay at this unique lodge for a total break from reality.

Room Tip: We stayed in an upstairs suite with an amazing view but all rooms are very spacious.
