Incredible lodge with great game, guides, food, and rooms. Stayed here for 3 nights during the dry season. Our guide Justine was very knowledgable and informative, and went out of his way to help us at all times. The park is not crowded, and you can spend hours without seeing another car. We saw tons of lions, elephants, giraffes, a leopard, two cheetahs, and so much more. The walking safari with the park rangers was very interesting and a good change of pace from the game drives.
The bandas (rooms) are built into the surroundings next to the river, allowing for great game viewing from the room. Dinner is served in the dry riverbed, surrounded by lanterns and a bonfire, which is an incredible surrounding. Well worth the extra travel time to Southern Tanzania.
