I spent 10 days in South Africa with hosts and owners of the lodge Karen and Gregory Sweeney. We used the treehouse as a base for the first few days of our photographic safari. Both hosts bent over backwards to accommodate us. The treehouse had all the modern convieninces in a tranquil rustic setting with a beautiful view of the landscape at treetop levels. The food at the lodge was excellent and each night we had at least one South African dish served in a BOMA. Breakfast and lunch was quite often served on the deck with a great variety of homemade food. The staff were pleasant, friendly and accomodating and were a pleasure deal with. I had my own treehouse and it was a wonderful experience. Going to sleep each night with the sounds of the wildlife in the background was special and good for the soul. The Photographic Safari was great! I had experiences that I will probably never be able to duplicate. I would highly recommend the lodge for any occasion and thank the staff for a wonderful time. Gregory Sweeney was a very knowledgeable person who shared experiences and techniques openely without hestitation and he and Karen his wife made you feel at home very quickly.
I would highly recommend the lodge and services to anyone who wants a memorable experience at a reasonable price.
