This very remote lodge belongs in an extra special category. It was not just the lodge, which is gorgeous, but the whole experience. The setting at the foot of a mountain looking out across desert and dunes to another mountain backdrop was one of the most beautiful settings of any lodge I've been to. The rooms are beautifully decorated and what a view from the free standing bath tub. The veranda, off of the bedroom, is a great place to pass time or even sleep at night when it is hot. The staff were excellent--very friendly and always ready to be of service. When returning from a morning game drive, the rooibos iced tea was perfect. Evening drives ended on a high location for our sundowner. We were fortunate to have great sightings of the desert adapted elephants, giraffes, and black rhinos with our guide Pollen. At night it was magical sitting around the fire pit with the most beautiful sky. We felt priviledged to be a part of this.
