This place is very different, designed for those who fancy a little adventure. It is in a breathtaking setting on a mountainside, and provides comfortable and safe accommodation a short walk from the place where meals are served in the open (weather permitting). Host Jann Bader has immense experience in providing hospitality and this lodge was his own creation, crafted from virtually nothing in hands-on fashion, as described in an interesting write-up of the whole process available in the lodge.
Clearly, Jann is passionate about providing his guests with an experience they won't forget, and is an entertaining host and a creative cook, providing evening meals in the open around a fire, with zebra, eland and springbok grazing a matter of five metres away.
Non-lovers of red meat should tread carefully.
A Hilton or Intercontinental Hotel this isn't, but these places don't provide what Jann provides, and at a remarkably inexpensive DB&B cost.
