We were greeted with warm towels and the attention to detail and care afforded us just carried on for the two nights we spent at the White Lion Lodge. The accommodation is really beautiful, with great attention to detail - the outdoor shower is particularly to be recommended, and the loo with a view!
The food and wine was plentiful and well prepared and served. Oh and the safari part - Israel worked tirelessly to make sure we had a fantastic experience. We were able to go out in the lLandrover twice a day, not only to see animals but also take in the local flora, with explanations of medicinal and culninary uses. We saw many animals, and even though the lions did not show themselves whilst we were there, we were more than happy with the zebra, giraffes, buffaloes, kudu, springbok, hippopotamus, elephants and many more.
I would definitely recommend White Lion Lodge to anybody who wants a high class safari experience, and would stay there again. Thanks Gerhild, Israel, Laura and all the rest of the staff who made our stay so enjoyable.
