this lodge has everything going for it, location ! the lay out and cleanness of the cottages, the views ! wonderful! there are only two letdowns, the kitchen is fair, not great, and portions are to small.
but the biggest point is the staff, in all the lodges i have stayed during my three trips to Africa, this staff was the only one that really looked unhappy, they just couldn't produce a smile and they look unhappy in what they do.
One exception is the walking guide, ( a real zulu) this guy is a joy to accompany
