Awesome, fantastic, Wonderful - We spent two nights in the company of Simon and Olivia and their staff at Jamila - what a lovely experience! It just so happened that we had the lodge and it's staff all to ourselves, which at first we thought might be somewhat irritating having doting hosts and staff in our faces....well it was not like that at all, yes they they were there on demand but left us to our own devices. The chef and guide were on leave at the time too, so these shoes were filled by Petrus and Simon as our rangers and Olivia as our chef - these guys are were amazing. Petrus and Simon were very knowledgeable about the bush and it's various residents - we even spotted Cheetah and her cubs, Rhino, Buffalo, Elephant great game viewing was had twice a day. The food was good too, Olivia outdid herself and pleased our tummy's with her creations. Great people, great lodge - we arrived as guests and left as friends!
The rooms were absolutely gorgeous, clean and neat, we stayed in Leopard with the best view of the lodge's water hole. The bed was a pleasure to sleep in, I wish there was more time to do just that. The rooms had everything one would need, from soap to good wine - fantastic!
All in all this lodge is great value for such an awesome experience - we loved it, so will you!
