We stayed at Khwai River Lodge for four days to celebrate my 40th birthday. The host couple Chantelle and Jacques went out of their way to make the weekend as special as possible. Nothing was to much trouble for them. The staff was extremely friendly and helpfull, the best we have ever experienced in any game lodge in Africa (trust me we have been to many 5 star lodges). The food was out of this world! From the snacks (if one could call it "snacks") in the bush to the boma dinner, every single meal a feast prepared by Cindy and her team. The room was confortable and stylish. The furniture and interior decorating at the lodge is somewhat outdated and needs a bit of a revamp to do justice to this amazing facility. February is however not a very good month to go for game viewing due to the high rainfall but we saw many elephants, impala, leopard and hiena. Kkwai is a must see for anyone who wants to experience Africa in style.
