Even though I had heared that his lodge is something special I was not at all prepared for the magnificent rooms with a view that equal parts took my breath away and made me want to squeal like a five year old! Apart from this, everyone made us feel welcome and we were fed and wined like at no other place I have ever been. This lodge is worth a visit for the dining alone.
The safaris were fantastic - thank you Israel for your great stories and always engaging knowledge about the local plants and animals : )
Thank you to all the animals who basically paraded in front of us as if wanting to show off - especially the lions who were actually getting ready for some hunting action. Amazing. We could have stayed there forever. I could not recommend this wonderful lodge more! Go visit, you will not regret it.
