We were recommend to go here by Imagine Africa as part of our honeymoon and we were thrilled by our choice. The rooms are extremely comfortable, and the fact that there is only candlelight and paraffin lamp in the room in the evening adds to the feel of being in the bush. Little honeymoon treats were also evident in the room.The staff are exceptional, many of them have been there for 20 odd years, and nothing was too much trouble for them. As it is a relatively small lodge, all the guests got to know each other so it was very sociable, and we were made to feel like part of the family by the owners.The game viewing was extremely good - we saw all of the big 5 on numerous occasions, and had an extremely close encounter with a leopard! The food is extremely good - it never stops coming and is of high quality. Our driver, Thomas was very good fun and extremely knowledgeable. Would recommend wholeheartedly for people wanting good game viewing in an extremely comfortable and friendly setting.
