We travelled in early July and experienced unusually cold and rainy weather which made the work of the guides very difficult as the game was scarce. However, Andy still did a great job entertaining and educating us during our 3 days both on game drive and walking, getting close to elephants (singly and in groups) on foot every day. He instilled complete confidence in us whilst walking, but taking care always that we understood the importance of our behaviour when accompanying him on foot. Andy was also very good at engaging both our interests (seasoned safari-ists) with those of the other guests in our vehicle who were on safari for the first time.
The lodge itself is intimate and set around an open pan so perfect for game viewing without leaving your bed / porch. The rooms are well appointed and not over done - suitably spacious and very comfortable. The staff were always on hand to assist with every need - in our case more hotwater bottles for bed and game drives! And the food - both quality and quality - was just perfect for our needs - tasty, wholesome, plenty of it but not so rich or complicated that you felt that the food was an event in itself. Meals were always entertaining as all staff and guides joined guests in eating together. Very much recommend this place - would happily return.More
