We booked this lodge because the photos showed the character of the place and the price was affordable.Upon check in we were greeted by a very friendly staff as well as the owners of the lodge and taken to our room. We booked in the family cottage and on entry found a beautiful arrangement of flowers on the bed spelling out "enjoy your stay" . It was such a nice touch we loved it.
They soon prepared dinner for us and served up on the patio with a fire in the pit and candle light. Because it was the off season we were the only ones there and had our own private dinner under the stars. The food was amazing and the service just as good. Before heading off to our cottage we were told there was a Leopard seen on the night camera on the property and not to do any night or early morning bush walks, how exciting!
After a good nights rest my husband was in the bathroom shaving and looked out the window to find himself eye to eye with a Nyla buck looking through the window. We all rushed to see it and had another nice visit from the monkeys playing with their babies. We went for a nice morning bush walk then headed for breakfast. I cannot say I left feeling hungry.
We loved our stay, it is not a flash hotel but rather a true African feel with lovely staff always there to help.
