As a family we stayed at this lodge and were treated like royalty. The lodge itself is situated on the banks of two rivers and as we visited during the dry season ( winter) both were without water which made game viewing more spectacular and the animals easier to view. We stayed in two rooms as children cannot be accommodated in their parent's room. The rooms are beautiful, each with their own plunge pools, napping/viewing decks suspended over the river and mosquito-netted beds. The staff are very attentive and we were even taken on a hike to spot a pride of lions that were tracked to a river bank. The game viewing in the area is excellent and we managed to see the Big 5 during our two day stay.
