After spending 2 weeks in South Africa, Zambia, and Botswana, this lodge was by far my favorite! On our first game drive, we saw an active den of wild dogs, then a family of three leopards (who left their impala kill in the tree to walk around our vehicle), and finally a male lion marking his territory at night! Our guides were incredible at finding and explaining the wildlife, and the staff at the hotel were friendly, learning our names quickly and singing for us on at least three separate occasions.
One afternoon after lunch, I tried to catch up on my journaling while sitting in the hammock on my tent porch. But I was unable to do so because of the parade of animals just across the river--at least 8 elephants, 20 hippos, and two types of antelopes kept me busy watching instead. The elephants waded into the water and began crossing over to our side, so we headed to the dining area, but what an incredible afternoon!
