It started off badly when the lodge didn't have our booking due to our tour operator taking it upon themselves to book us into large hotel in Kasane instead of the luxury lodge in the bush that we had booked. Fortunately a room was available so despite the hotel sending a car to try and get us to go there and demanding a 100% cancellation fee if we didn't go, we stayed put and I'm glad we did. Shaun (owner) and his team looked after us and made so welcome.
Stunning views from the escarpment were the lodge is situated across the Chobe river.
Room are very nice but a little on the small side and are due for some refurbishment. Owners know this and Shaun was telling me that the first one has been extended and the rest will be done later this year.
Food was good and we enjoyed the communal dining.
Full day safari with our guide Neo was a really wonderful day. It was a great contrast to have a 3 hour river safari in the middle of the day to see the animals from a different perspective and to get close to the hippos and crocs.
A great place now and will be even better once the rooms have been re-done
