We stayed in one of the tree lodges overlooking zebra grazing and monkeys running around. What a treat! The welcome when we arrived was lovely, the staff took our bags and gave us a refreshing welcome cocktail. Our tree lodge was very comfortable. It was very unfortunate that we had a power cut on the first evening, and without the use of air conditioning our room was stiffling hot, which made for a terrible nights sleep. We just wish the staff had told us that there was a fuse switch and at about 11pm the power had actually come back on and if we had used this switch we wouldn't have had such a bad night....never mind.
The food was delicious and we were lucky to have 1 evening in the resturant and another outside around the fire. Great hospitality and wonderful staff - I didn't want to leave!
