“Wonderful experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2008

We (two adults and two teenagers) stayed for five nights and loved every minute. Lidiko Lodge consists a number of air-conditioned en-suite lodges set around an inviting pool in peaceful gardens. Accommodation has an air of luxury but at very reasonable prices and is clean and well maintained. Breakfast is delightful and consists cold buffet with interesting home-cooked hot dishes. There's also an all-day terrace menu for snacks etc. but we were always out. Five minutes walk to numerous reasonable restaurants in the small town centre. The setting is outstanding but what made our stay so memorable was the level of care and attention provided by owners Dirk and Lyzette, assistant Paul, and their hospitable team. They have created such an inviting place with their great humour, relaxed style, and knowledge of the area. Cultural visits, turtle safaris, estuary cruises, etc, can all be booked thro' Lidiko. Just a few minutes to view hippos and crocs. Monkeys and mongeese regular visitors to Lidiko's gardens. We could go on!! Fantastic!
