The Lodge has a great location if a little tedious to get to as it is a good half hour from the Park headquarters up a rough dirt road. However the views over the lake made it worthwhile. Facilities in the lodge are very good particularly considering it is an eco lodge with all solar power.
Lights in the rooms are pretty faint so don't expect to read.
Food was very good and staff were friendly and helpful.
