We had a fantastic stay at the Ukhozi Lodge. We went out on 2 trips a day at 6am and 4pm then came back for breakfast and dinner. We were all inclusive and the food and drink was great. The staff in the lodge are fantastic and cannot do enough for you. The set up of the trips is good, leaving time in the day to relax and explore. Jan our tour guide was fantastic and made us laugh and made everyone feel comfortable. The wildlife experience was amazing and Jan's knowledge was never ending. I will never forget the near sighting of the rare "Honey Badger" and the exciting bumpy chase with wine in hands that followed.
I love the atmosphere at the camp and it was great when you stood on your balcony and watched deer, monkeys, birds, cats and giraffes all grazing feet from your window. In the near distance we could see rhino, zebra, wilderbeasts, and buffalo grazing. We also went out on a night drive and saw hippo's out of the water grazing.
Overall we loved ths experience - we would recommend the trip to everyone it is great for children from about 10 updwards and adults of all ages,
Our only problem was we were not happy with the rooms they were very dated and basic the toilet and bathrooms left a lot to be desired. The cleanliness of the loo was not good, needs a bit of bleach!!!!
