My husband and I made a last minute decision and booking to go to African Spirit Game Lodge as part of our honeymoon. Given our late booking, we were warmly received by Madeline and Jesse who made our checking and settling in simple and homely. We were very happy to find that the lodge offered exactly the peace and quiet we were after, as well as a very relaxing environment and atmosphere. We thoroughly enjoyed the use of the swimming pool and bar area. We had plenty of privacy, but also great interactions with the other guests. We very much enjoyed the food, the meals were very satisfactory and served according to our personal needs. The game drive was also great and we were very impressed with Jesse's knowledge of the local flora and fauna. The hospitality and service at African Spirit was very professional and we very much enjoyed two very special nights of our honeymoon at the lodge. We will definitely be returning, and look forward to our next trip.
