This was a lovely place to stay during a safari. Beautiful setting, gigantic and well-equipped rooms, refreshing salt-water pool, fantastic food and excellent service. I appreciated their lunch box service which allowed you to pack your own lunch -- a welcome change from the butter sandwich and dried chicken leg offerings of other places! They had a reasonably laundry service ($1 per item). The lodge is on a coffee plantation and the (drip) coffee was EXCELLENT -- we even bought some beans to take home.
