but compared to other Amakhala lodges more like a hotel without the personal touch of an owner/manager.
The individual houses are beautifully appointed, I had no trouble with the water pressure but the lights seemed temperamental... I loved the outside shower from where you can overlook nature as well and just really felt comfortable. The walkway is lit from below, so you can safely walk back to your room at night but there was also a very kind member of staff who was ready to escort me with a torch after dinner.
The food was ok, just not as spectacular as can be had elsewhere. The wifi was not working but staff were happy for me to use their office one which was nice though not quite the point.
The pool was spotless as the rest of the lodge and staff really make an effort to welcome you, make you feel comfortable, etc.
This is the one to go to with children as there is a resident "nanny" and they are equipped to look after the smaller visitors as well.
I had a wonderful elephant sighting as the grey giants just ambled past the lodge right in front and the scenery is just gorgeous.
Lovely little detail was that when my car was brought around for my departure it had been parked in the shade ! And the Amakhala water bottle to take away has been my companion ever since, a lovely eco-friendly reminder of a good stay.
