Kobus was at the front door to meet us after we had 'buzzed' the intercom system at the gate. So commenced the start of the attention that we were to receive throughout the weekend. A welcome drink, followed by help with our suitcases.
Our room was delightful and opened up onto manicured grounds. Boxed bars of full sized Dove soap in the bathrooms together with other usual sized toiletries. The only disappointment here was the single ply loo paper.
Kobus liked to serrve dinner at 7pm so that all guests ate together and latecomers delay the start. The food was wonderful and dinner is always a 4 course meal with sorbet served at inbetween.
Breakfast, on the other hand, is served at your leisure and in your own time and this made a change for us as we no longer needed to rush into the dinigroom to eat before it closed.
The lodge provides an evening, open side car ride around the borders of the lodge to view the animals and although we did not take advantage of this, we were able to walk around the property and saw zebra, deer, ostriches and even a hare at close quaters.
Kobus provided the walking sticks and sunhats for the journey.
although we visited in November, I am writing my review in January and can only add that I have fond memories of our stay and recommend it to those looking to get away from it all and to be well looked after.
