This was an amazing place to stay. We loved the lodge, the service, the views and the activities. Recommend it highly.
We stayed for three nights. The rooms are very comfortable. During the day you can see elephants and other animals from your room! The bathroom is huge and the shower gels and shampoos really nice. The little pool is fantastic. We soaked up the sun in the sundecks and had dips in the pool. The star bed on the roof is amazing, although better during the warmer months.
The activities are cool. Because its a huge area for just one lodge, you dont see cars or other people while game driving. It feels incredibly intimate. We saw loads of gazelles, horses, wildebeest, orixes, giraffes, wart hogs etc. We went horseback riding, which was a favorite. The lava cave expedition was really fun too, although make sure you have good shoes and are fit and strong. Night game drive is fun, even though it may take a while to find animals. We saw lots of huddled herbivores, spring hares, jackals and hyenas.
The lodge does the luxuries really well. The massages are amazing. The cocktails great and the views from the dining area great. The little touches like a hot water bottle in the bed, making up your room while you are away, topping up your water, really makes a difference.
We loved our stay at the lodge and would highly recommend it.
