We had a couple of fantastic days at Needles Lodge. We really liked the personal atmosphere, the joint dinners and surrounding area. We were very nicely cared for and an extra big thank you to Colin who took such good care of us doing all the safari activities, day or night.

If you're on TripAdvisor because you like finding places to stay where you will meet the owner and relax knowing things are handled, then stop looking and just book this.

We had an amazing time at Needles. Colin, Dennis and the rest of the staff ensure that your every need is taken care of - from dietary preferences to organizing excursions to resupplying poolside beers. The rooms are well taken care of and very comfortable. Almost every time you walk outside, there are animals wondering about only a few meters...
