This review is months overdue but I promised myself I would get it done. Needles is a fantastic lodge with wonderful people. Denis, Wesley, Gail and the rest of the staff always made us feel right at home. The lodge is beautifully kept & the rooms are gorgeous. Dinner was amazing every night! Many animals come around to the lodge which is a lot of fun to be able to sit on the deck while drinking a Savannah and taking in the zebras, giraffes, warthogs or whoever decides to show up that day. Our two safaris were fantastic with our driver, Denis. You can tell he cares about all the animals and has a passion for what he does. My only complaint is that our stay was too short! Thank you for all the hospitality and we hope to be back soon!
