I stayed here in October 2013, and although my review is a bit late , all these months later, the lodge holds fond memories. I booked this as a birthday treat for my little boy , and it ended up being a treat for us all. From the time you enter, the staff are warm and hospitable. It is a scenic and beautiful lodge , with 5 star trimmings. Service is provided by a small group of staff who do their job very well. The rooms were comfortable, and had an outdoorsy feel. The food was of a great standard, my fish was cooked well for dinner, and the pecan tart and homemade cinnamon icecream was a fantastic treat to end the day with . My son and friend's kids were a little fussy and the restaurant staff were happy to make them something off the night's menu.
The game drives are the real star of this show, Kenny our game ranger, had amazing knowledge on the animals.. and animals we did see. 22 giraffes roaming together. Elephants, rhinos, buffalo, and we saw a lion hunt a giraffe, a moment where we all held our breaths and were in total awe... we saw the hunt, but not the kill , as the lion retreated. Snacks are provided on the game drives and they are well organised and leave at the prescribed time. The cheetah conservation nearby is a must-visit as well, and we saw a leopard there and African wild cats.
Altogether I would definitely return, really enjoyed the trip, one night was just too short.
