I booked my stay directly through their booking service in Johannesburg. I was traveling solo and the prices was based on 2 persons sharing a bungalow. They were nice to knock of the price so it was an affordable price for me traveling alone. Very happy with that.
I arrived trough the main gate coming from Botswana. I had directions for for lodge and made it there on the first try (but do make sure you get it right, it's a lot of roads in there an they look similar).
I was met at the parking lot, and he helped me with my luggage. At check in I was told I was the only guest. Another group had just left, and the next one would arrive after I left. Never had a whole hotel to myself. They showed me to my bungalow and I was stunned. Very nice.... smelled wonderful due to the grass roof. Bungalow itself was clean, spacious and had a very nice bed. Best thing was probably the shower, with sliding doors to the outside. If you open the wide open it's like showering outside. Sat down and enjoyed the silence and scenery, when a family of ab baboons walked by and sat in the trees next to my bungalow.
I had two very nice game drives. The ranger was knowledgeable and friendly. Got to see lions up close on both drives. Returning late from the night drive, they had made a bonfire for me and the ranger, where we where served a lovely 3 course dinner. The staff was very friendly and obviously gave me very much attention being the only guest. I felt like a king.
All in all I enjoyed my stay very much. I would highlight the rooms, excellent view of the bush, with the lodge sitting along the top of the ridge. During my stay I learned that the lodge was fully owned by a local community of a Buffalo tribe (hence the name). This means you are giving back something to this community by staying here. Gave me i good feeling and would like to pass that on to others.
I probably could go on about this place put I hope you find tis helpful and inspiring.
