My wife and I were picked up in Kasane by Lips and taken to the lodge to be met by the relief manager Cath and her enthusiastic staff.Cath sat down with us for lunch when we arrived and made us feel so welcome that we had no doubts that Muchenje had been a good choice for the start of our second trip to Africa.The rooms are wonderful and are much better than they appear on the web site.Food is home cooking and is plentiful and there is enough variety to make it interesting.Let me be clear this is a great place with great staff led by a great temp GM but the real stars of the show are the guides.We were lucky enough to get Lips and I know everyone likes to think they had the best guide in Africa but he may well take that title.Lips found all the usual grass eaters as well as a pair of male lions on the prowl and we we're fortunate enough to see a female lion reunite with one of her cubs after a hyena had killed her other one.The drama continued on the full day river trip with great up close viewing of elephants and yes Lips found us a leopard to really top off a great day.We stayed 3 nights in June and would go back in a heart beat.
