We stayed at African Spirit Game lodge (self-catering unit) as a three day stop over, over Christmas 2012. We received the most wonderful welcome from the staff, especially Madelaine and Jesse. The unit is spacious and clean and the rooms are beautifully decorated. The grounds were well maintained and the swimming pool was a hit, especially due to the heat!
Jesse took us on a game drive and he found him to be very knowledgeable and entertaining! AND he had patience with a little toddler who became bored after half an hour! Thank you!
We loved our visitors the two doggies who kept an eye on us at night and played with our son during the day!
Thank you again for a lovely holiday.
