Here is a superb realistically priced 5 star Safari Lodge. All expected Lodge amenities were available and the Rangers did a superb job in getting us to sightings of the BIG Five, as we all know the dependence on this is a little bit of luck as well. Leopard and Lion sightings were great, it was mating time (the animals must have thought it was Christmas).
The Chef Attie really went out of his way to do TASTY meals, although they were top quality, they had individual taste and were not the run of the mill cooked meals.
This was our second visit after 5 years and to our surprise we were welcomed back by Mamsie who even new which chalet we had stayed in the last visit, superb. Patience in the dining room also new we had been there and she gave us, as well as other guests absolutely excellent service. Louis the General Manager also made the point of seeing us and making sure we were comfortable and happy. THIS KIND OF SERVICE IS RARELY EXPERIENCED THROUGHOUT THE WORLD.
Well done for making this memorable. The staff did not know it was our anniversary, and all of this made it a memorable one.
