My first time at a game lodge, and it exceeded all my expectations.
Rooms: very spacious, fantastic combination of authentic (high thatched ceilings, wood) and modern (super modern bathrooms) - appreciated having the atmosphere of the bush combined with really comfortable luxury.
Lobby/Restaurant: Loved the outdoor seating areas, where you could relax in really comfortable lounge furniture and enjoy gorgeous views of the landscape and animals. Buffet breakfast had wide selection and nice, fresh foods. Bush braai dinner fantastic -! Also mid-day snacks like grilled cheese and tomato sandwiches very nice.
Spa: A dream! Treated myself to an African Signature massage, one of the best of my life.
Game Drive: Great experience. Experienced guide who is clearly passionate about what he does.
Don't have any otherAfrican bush adventure experiences to compare this to - but found it just fantastic!
