This may be ideal for some people, but we didn't meet any. The lodge is very attractive and clean and our room was fine - if dark. Lovely gardens. Our complaint was that, despite the "blurb" on the site, there was no flexibility or willingness to listen to clients. "Welcome to rip-off Africa" and "We feel imprisoned within the walls by the prices of the outings" were two comments made to us by other guests from those in the dorms as well as the separate rooms. Being kept waiting 20 minutes to check out, having arranged a time and with a taxi waiting, while the proprieter had a shower was just the icing on the cake. We had already decided to cancel our return booking. It took another 1/2 hour to pay the bill. In true Honey Badger style, we were told "This is Africa". No apology and not our experience elsewhere. Please think through your service, Honey Badger, as the potential there is huge.
