Of all the lodges we stayed at Arathusa was my least favorite. The room was OK but not terribly private. The main building was absolutely superb it had a good bar area for pre dinner drinks, but it lacked atmosphere. Food was OK but not overly generous in serving sizes. Our tracker was very informative he certainly knew his stuff. The vehicles were packed to the maximum with people including a person in the front seat. Overall there was something missing, I felt this lodge was more about them making money for the least possible outlay. With regards to wildlife it was excellent but having the vehicles stuffed to the max make it a little uncomfortable. We saw lots of rhino, elephants, cheetah, lions a leopard. That part I wouldn't criticise.
