Our 3 nights stay in Thornicroft Lodge as been most enjoyable.
Nice chalets near the South Launga River vhere we sat in confortable outside armchairs to watch crodiles, impalas and hippos ...
Safaris from 6 am with the cheerfull Geoffrey (liked my hippo dance) who drove us trhough the park.first in and last out ! Thanks to him we could spot lions and wonderfull leopards, first one asleep and the second day two hunting ones ! Yawning hippos i asked for, porkepines, mating lions,.and of course superb Thornicroft Giraffes...
after a nice meal and rest, we go again on a night safari from 4 pm with a sindowner drink, before we spot animals at night.
First and second night Elephants visited us in the Lodge,where plenty of monkeys make
The food was exellent and this is the right word. Thank yoy Chef.
We loved our stay and would recommand it to anyone for it is a very good value.
No need to go for an expensive Logde where yoy would see the same park and the same animals!!
Thanks to Godfrey and his team, emma, and all the night watchers.
