Karula as a beautiful lodge - the room's decor is very modern which was a bit of a surprise but a pleasant one - The outside veranda overlooks the river, monkeys playfully bounded about (but make sure doors are locked and leave nothing of value outside or unattended) and the room was spacious and contemporary.
The staff is very attentive. Our Ranger Julius and the tracker were very professional and delivered on every drive. We say our first male adult Lion on this reserve. Sharin was very helpful making alternative arrangements for us on our next stop in Cape Town.
The food is above average - not spectacular but extremely good. I get the feeling the chef was more interested in inventive construction and presentation than nuance and subtle tastes but it sit the surroundings.
The only suggestion - get better wifi coverage. After safari, I wanted to organize, posts and send pictures and it was dicey due to the relatively poor bandwidth. While not a huge problem, it was a bit aggravating at times. However, all in all, a great lodge, wonderful views, interesting cosmopolitan guests, excellent game drive experiences.More
