i cannot praise this lodge enough for a wonderful stay. We did 4 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Nothing was too much trouble, the staff were friendly and helpful. There were little touches that surpassed any lodge I have stayed in previously which added to my experience. Even though the weather was chilly on the game drives they had it covered with blankets, fleece ponchos and hot water bottles. I would recommend this place without hesitation. Saw lots of animals, visited the Born Free foundation on Shamwari thanks to our Ranger SJ. Malaria free too which was a bonus.
