Had a week at main Lodge. We were assigned a Ranger for the 7 days. Excellent guide and very helpful. Had 2 game drives on their reserve a day. Can ask for a "bush walk" which we did twice and thoroughly enjoyed it. Get totally different perspective of animals out of the truck. Did go Hluhluwe/Imfolozi park for the entire day, which was well worth the side trip cost. Food was above average - buffet breakfast and dinner and about dozen selections for lunch. Couple of disappointments - pool was not heated and extremely cold, even though weather was warm; and no exercise room, which you need when you are eating and just driving around in trucks. And there is no place to walk around the lodge, unless you have ranger with a gun with you. Almost everyone at the lodge had purchased packages though charity auctions in the states. Staff were friendly and accommodating to the best of the ability. Very panoramic - make sure you ask for your ranger to take you to a view point for a sunset and bring a bottle of wine with you!
