We stayed at Mawimbi Lodge for 2 weeks, and after looking at various types of accommodation, we hit the jackpot!!
The price was reasonable, the whole place was clean, but homely.
Giovanni gave us such a welcome, and nothing was too much for him or his staff, if we ever needed anything.
The breakfasts were legendary!! I couldn't resist having cooked every day!
Each individual chalet had it's own veranda area with a traditional African bed, this was so comfortable after a hot and dusty day - go and have a cooling dip in the immaculate swimming pool - then a relaxing read on the veranda! - heavenly.
We can't wait to go and stay again next year - it was our home from home.
Thanks Giovanni and all of your staff, for always having a smile!
