We arrived at the lodge to discover we were the only visitors there during our 2 night trip. Straight away we were welcomed by Jabu, Suzanne & John and were escorted to the main lodge to complete the minimal paperwork. The view from the main lodge is breathtaking, and the decor in the lodge is just stunning. We were then taken to our room, The Leopard Suite which was incredible! We had ceiling to floor glazing with a bath that overlooked the bush, an outdoor shower and a separate outdoor sleeping area with Jacuzzi!! I could go on for hours about how amazing everything was but I will make it brief, Jabu's cooking was sublime, we ate like royalty, Suzanne and John made sure that the room was always spotless and Thomas (our game warden / tracker) couldn't have been more knowledgable.
If you are looking for a lodge thats intimate and unique, this is the one. There is no TV or internet but you do get a phone signal although why you wanna watch TV on a safari is beyond me!
