Simply fantastic. Had just one night and it was one of the best lodges that I have stayed in since moving to Kenya. It is in a stunning location with the park just on the other side of the river. Within less than 24 hours we saw buffalo, giraffe, crocodiles, baboons and a whole host of gorgeous birds. The rooms are done to an incredibly high standard, with such wonderful attention to detail, including guide books to animals in the rooms, and sumptuous wash products. The bathroom looked over the plains opposite, so in the evening I was able to indulge in a long held dream of bathing whilst looking out into the national park - it doesn't get more special than that. Or at least not until dinner! Wow... The food was incredible. We were served steak with a blue-cheese and mushroom sauce and all the trimmings. I love my food and this was one of the best meals I have had in Africa, and possibly one of my top 10 steaks I have ever had. The rooms are incredibly comfortable, and it would have been hard to drag myself out of the gorgeous bed had it not been for the tea and coffee served to our room along with freshly baked biscuits in the morning. Breakfast didn't disappoint, with all manor of fresh fruits, home-made granola, fresh smoothies, pancakes and cooked breakfast made to order. The owners Emma and Anton and wonderful, and the staff are attentive and help to make your stay all you could wish for. We only got to stay one night, but I can't wait till we can stay again.
