We stayed two nights in January at Tangala Lodge which were probably the best two nights I have spent anywhere. Loved the simplicity of it all - the fact that there were so few guests and no electricity (but still managed to have a very nice glass of cold white wine). We were looked after so well. Excellent home cooked food by Goodness. The drives with Floiris and Philip were so exciting. Thanks to them, with their energy and passion, we saw so much. Obviously the animals were amazing but so was the driving and where Floris took us in that Jeep! I did not think we would be that close to a lion or an elephant. Although not so good to look at, the sight of a lion eating a giraffe was unbelievable! The sundowners in the Park were a real treat and entering the candlelit Lodge from a late afternoon drive, being met with a hot towel and a glass of sherry are such lovely memories for us. We highly recommend Tangala. Not pretentious in the least and very good value for money.
