Until the end of 2011 this place was run by Chris and Linda, who have a pretty amazing reputation according to the locals and also the guest book. Then Peter and Lystra took over. They are friendly and helpful, but some of the magic has been lost. The rooms are spotlessly turned out and the location is good, but nobody ever drinks at the bar and guests rarely eat at the restaurant (The Bamboo -- see TripAdvisor reviews) or swim in the pool. As a result, the Lodges are more like rented accommodation than a hotel with its own atmosphere, but you can rent accommodation as good as this in Calibishie for 100 USD a night. To compete, Calibishie Lodges has to resuscitate the communal facilities such as the pool, restaurant and bar.
