The weather was wonderfully bright and sunny, but chilly. The Lodge is organised and we felt VERY welcome.. we were expected and greeted warmly. We went straight into lunch which was buffet and plentiful followed by a game drive. Our ranger was informative and we saw lots of game including hippo out of the water. We returned for fireside cappuccinos and a brief rest before dinner where we were entertained by a marimba female trio.. very good ! Buffet dinner was fine. Accommodation standard... breakfast BUSY ! followed by horseriding - 6 ladies who can't ride was quite funny ! we experienced a tiff between an elephant and a rhino which was a bit disturbing once we realised why they were fighting.( the male elephant wanted to mount the rhino female.) .. I foresee a problem here... anyway, it was a good experience all round and we enjoyed ourselves. !
