Our group booked at this lodge as its close to the border with Botswana so its appeared to be a good first night for our 10 day trip. When we arrived we found a tour operator had checked in before us and taken our rooms. The lodge had given favour to this tour operator who was a regular at this lodge. We checked the tour operators booking and it was for another date. The lodge referred us to another lodge in the area who could accommodate us. When a lodge puts its commercial interests in front of its guest relations one has to ask is this a reliable venue? Our group will never use this lodge again and strongly suggest that others consider their options.
