Really amazing, service was impeccable and game viewing was incredible. I was traveling with someone with food allergies, they went out of their way to make an allergen free version of everything on the menu, just in case she wanted it, even if there were 3 other alternatives. The game drives were wonderful. The rooms were great. The only thing...

I stayed here for 3 nights and it was absolutely amazing! Our guide Ntsako and tracker Exon were hilarious and very knowledgable. They were able to tell us a remarkable amount about each and every animal we asked about. The safari cars were very comfortable! Best 3 nights I've ever had!

Absolutely loved this lodge and the entire staff under the management of Helen. From the minute we arrived to the time we left, it was 5 star treatment. We also loved our driver Sako, who is amazing, interesting and so fun. Wished we had stayed an extra day beyond 4 days.
