Thoroughly beautiful lodge in a stunning location in the middle of a tea plantation. Very calm and relaxing. Enjoyed their own tea. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. The food was mostly very good. Activities accessible from Lodge included trekking chimps and canopy walk for which you need your own driver and car. Both well worth the additional cost but quite strenuous with hundreds of steps to climb on canopy trail. It was helpful to take a porter on the chimp trek. The chimp trek I found to be more difficult than trekking the gorillas in Rwanda. Room was excellent with monkeys playing in trees outside balcony.
