Beautiful and spotless accomodation, good restaurant (Kingfisher), friendly staff. Game drives at very competitive rates (confirmed by south-african people who were visiting the lodge for the 3rd time). We took an afternoon and early morning game drive and were very lucky to spot rhino's, elephants, hippo & croc (afternoon) and 4 lions (early morning) just after they made a kill.
We also did the boat trip, which in itself is not a big deal (you tour around the lake a couple of times) but still worthwhile for birdspotting and beautifull sunset, while enjoying an ice-cold beer. All this at very short distance from Joburg/Pretoria.
