After our ordinary sedan survived the terrible 29km dirt road we were warmly welcomed at Kololo. (Rather tackle this with a 4x4).The rooms are comfortable and neat. The staff is great! The meals were good but I was disappointed that we were not offered a real South African "braai". The menu lacks imagination and needs attention to serve more traditional SA dishes with tasty (not dry) desserts. The boma should be utilized more so that visitors can admire all the stars outside. What about a nice fire in the boma in the evening where visitors can enjoy a glass of wine? The lodge dies down by 8.30pm every night so one gets plenty of rest. The quietness of the lodge and bush veld was amazing. The photo's on the website are misleading since Kololo don't have any Rhino's or Hippo's. We however saw lots of buck and giraffe. Overall enjoyed the weekend and stay at Kololo.
