Had a family vacation at the lodge in early October 2016. Absolutely fantastic experience. From the very luxurious rooms, game drives guaranteed to see wildlife and the food fit for a king, our stay was just the escape from the city we needed. The staff is extremely pleasant and helpful and the deck at the dining room offers wonderful views...

The service was outstanding (Eva is an angel!) and Regina, the babysitter who looked after our kids while we went on the morning game drives, did an amazing job. A few luxury lodges 'accommodate' kids...

Everything was perfect. We felt like we were royalty, the service was so good. The food was sensational. We had the same ranger every time we went on safari so he knew what we had seen and what he had to look for. Great knowledge.
