We were moved from the lodge we had booked without explanation or apology. The rooms were nice and the bed comfortable but I have to say breakfast was odd with orders for eggs being taken after people had dished up the rest of their hot breakfast. The service at supper was really poor with the waiter twice dripping food down the backs of guests at our table. The food was nice and staff did make a fuss of a lady who was celebrating her birthday. But overall the lodge was disappointing. The best thing about our stay was the lions, leopard and wild dogs we saw on our game drives. But nature being nature the is no guarantee and I would have struggled to have fond memories of this place without the wildlife.
