The lodge is set up on the granite rocks, a 4x4 is used to ferry guests from the car park up to the lodge - guests can self drive in a normal 2 wheel drive sedan. Lin, the hostess is just lovely. Rooms were all facing the stunning Matobo scenery and very comfortable, piping hot water and very comfortable beds, linens. There are no client communication facilities at this point. Borehole and mains power supply the lodge. The staff were minimal & discreet. The food was wholesome and enough - we didn't stay long enough! Lovely to sit with in-room coffee in the morning & wake up. We didn't do any activities so cannot comment but guests in the lodge had a great experience.
