We were a group of 8 people who stayed over at Chui Lodge on the 19th and 20th of February 2017. Our stay was great - spacious rooms with all amenities and friendly personnel. Food was fine dining quality. The view from restaurant is the best. The game drive stood out.

I can't say enough about this lodge...the beauty of the rooms, the artistic touches, the carved beams, the paintings on the Windows, the fire laid in your room each night, the flowers everywhere. It just could not have been any better. The bucolic setting allows you to look across the lawn from your room or the pool and see animals...
