My wife and I stayed last October. The setting is superb with views across a river area. The accommodation is very good indeed. Private cottage type rooms with plenty of space , own decking and plunge pools with views. The food was plentiful and very tasty.
The safari drives are nothing short of magical. Each vehicle is adapted to suit and will only seat a max of 6 so no daft over crowding. With guides like Meeka we had an amazing time. The staff are so into what they do its brilliant. The lodge is geared up for luxury with fantastic safari. Your guide will show and tell you about all kinds of animals. We viewed the big 5 many times over plus much much more. I would go back tomorrow.
Simply superb. Thank you.
