We spent the New Year's holiday at this magnificent lodge. On every measure, it surpassed our expectations! We can't say enough about the hospitality of everyone at the lodge. From Atasha's warm welcome back after each game drive, to the chef and servers and most certainly ranger Willie and John, our spotter, it was very personal and we were made to feel welcome and at home. The lodges were beautifully decorated and felt like a five star resort in the bush. The home cooked meals were delicious with the New Year's eve bbq of African cuisine a highlight. But what made the trip extraordinary was Willie, our ranger whose knowledge, expertise and professionalism made our games drives an experience none of us will ever forget. We really learned about the 'circle of life' in the bush and learned to appreciate the role that even the insects play in this web of life. Willie went over and above to make sure that we not only saw the 'magnificent 7' but experienced them upfront and personal! Everyone who works at the lodge is dedicated and passionate about what they do and their pride shines through to all who visit. We would highly recommend this to anyone who wants a top notch safari experience. We hope to return the next time we are in Africa.
