Where to begin? The bumpy ride in our rented 4-wheel drive vehicle was MORE than worth it... Who knew what the reward was at the end of the road? Paradise. John and Maureen and their staff (especially Davide) were welcoming and always anxious to do everything they could to ensure our every need was met. The lodge was beautiful, relaxing, and, the view... spectacular. It literally lulls you into a state of relaxed bliss. We stayed in Mongo Congo (cabin) for 7 days and could not have been happier. Going to sleep to the sounds of the jungle and waking up to the howler monkeys was amazing. Although we opted to rent a car and take day trips, John and Maureen are more than happy to arrange transportation, if needed. Oh, did I mention the fantastic food and coffee grown on the property? We (my boyfriend and I) actually had a hard time leaving. Not just the "normal" not wanting to end vacation, but we felt so bonded with John and Maureen and their five loveable pooches. Still trying to figure out how to get hired there... Ha.
