We were there early January 2014, after planning a trip there for many years. We flew in from Londolozi direct with federal air (by the way highly recommended). The land is simply stunning, the owners did a great job to return farmland to wilderness. Guiding was good but not excellent, the staff in general good, but there is a difference to family run lodges. We stayed in Mountain Lodge which is the only lodge accepting kids under 16. It's rather big by comparison to similarly priced lodges in RSA. We had a family room with no view, but a small pool on the deck. But no shading on either terrace (there were two). We would have preferred to stay in one of the other lodges. It's Abigail place and sometimes it's difficult have good sightings as the vehicles have to drive to various areas, although they know the animals are elsewhere. Nevertheless a must if you love Black Rhino as much as I do !!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- With wraparound views of the ancient Ubombo mountain range, Mountain Lodge balances itself majestically above its panoramic surroundings. The 24 suites scattered along the mountainside offer complete privacy and luxury. There's no end to the choice of taking in the view - spacious verandas with private plunge pools and layered guest areas each provide their own magnificent outlook. Delicious Pan African meals are enjoyed in the dramatic stone and reed boma, lit by the warm glow of dozens of candles and lanterns. ... more less
