We stayed at Mountain Lodge and Amy was our Ranger and Malusi was our Game Tracker. They were both wonderful and we had fantastic viewings of elephant and cheetah which were the animals our party most wanted to see. Our accommodation was lovely and we only wished we had more time to enjoy it as we only booked one night....

Our family (3 generations) stayed at Mountain Lodge for 3 nights. We were all so well looked after - especially our kids who enjoyed their morning activities with Steph and their afternoon game viewing with the adults.

The lodge has a great location on top of a prominent hill quickly accessable from their private airstrip. Rooms are very good with excellent views and private plunge pools to cool off. The main communal area is very nice with comfortable furniture and open bar area makes one feel right at home. Food was also very good and we were...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
