    The personal meal the staff set up on the verandah of our lodge for myself and my partner on New Years Eve with candles, a bottle of champagne, petals on the table and excellent service and hospitality.

    The only thing I would recommend rather than didn't like is the three mornings I went out searching for animals was at 5.30am and I think each morning was quite quiet until at least 6.30am in terms of spotting animals so you could push the morning kick off until 6.30am instead of 5.30pm

    The friendly staff, facility with the view of bush and wild animals and food arrangement with heart.

    Nothing I didn’t like.

    The entire experience from beginning to end far exceeded all our expectations. The lodge has an authentic and intimate feel as it only caters for up to 4 rooms. Our guide, Rew, had incredibly impressive knowledge of all the animals and got us much closer than we could have ever imagined. Our tracker, Vousi, displayed great knowledge and also nerves of steel being sat on front of the car. Food and housekeeping was also fantastic - delicious variety of food.

    The location of the Lodge was excellent. The ranger Gino was very enthusiastic about his work and did his best to show us as many animals as possible. He added great value to the experience. The food was nice and plentiful. Staff was pleasant and service the best. The dining environment was always charming. A special thanks for the wine and candles on our anniversary.

    I wish we had gone out for the safari on our last morning. I got the impression the staff was not very willing.
