My wife and I had an absolutely wonderful time at the Thornicroft Lodge. The manager, David, was wonderful and took great care of us, as did the rest of the staff. The meals were delicious. We slept very well in the comfortable rooms with the sound of hippos and raindrops in the distance. Our guide, Godfrey, is a veteran of 23 years and did a superb job. I would definitely return to this lodge.
