As we only had one night away to enjoy a special anniversary, we decided on Zwahili as it is an easy 90 minute drive from Northern Gauteng. We had a midweek stay which was given at a much cheaper rate than usual and therefore turned out to be good value for money, as it included all the same benefits of a full rate - fruit drink on arrival, fruit in room, high tea (absolutely delicious!), two game drives (sunset and early morning) a four course dinner (very good) and a wonderful full breakfast (great omelettes).
We experienced unseasonably cool weather due to a much needed rain storm in the area and after a very informative and somewhat soggy game drive with our knowledgeable ranger Andrew, we were delighted to return to our cosy room where a hot bath had been run and was waiting for us.
This is not the place to stay to see big five game as there are none at this Lodge however it is the place to stay for a relaxing bush break -The bird life is incredible and we were lucky enough to be there during breeding season and saw many newly born buck, wildebeest, zebra and warthog.
The service in the restaurant was excellent and the food beautifully presented and of a very good quality. The room we had (Cheetah room) had a great comfortable bed, mini-bar, bathroom with bath and shower, mosquito net around the bed, a fan and a private deck to sit on in good weather - my only complaint would be that the room is a little small and therefore the two chairs in the room are not great big, comfy reading chairs!
We enjoyed our stay as we weren't expecting more than was offered on Zwahili's own web site.
