          This is a spectacular lodge, do not expect to see huge game numbers, just enjoy the unique experience. The Spaces are so unusual and a pleasure to spend time in your own Space.I have been before, and will go again!!

          We will be there in winter. End of July. Can someone who has been there in winter tell me about how cold it is in the room. I am concerned as it's all open and it will be too cold. Showering I assume will be a quick one!! My girlfriend booked this for us as she lives in Joburg but I am worried it won't be enjoyable sleeping and showering etc as it's too cold. Could someone please tell me about their experience there in the winter months. Thank you. Donna.
