          We stayed for a 2 night trip in the Safari Lodge during a cold weather period. The Chalets are not really recommendable when it is cold, it is too much of a tent. The lodge itself is OK, but a bit disapointing, more a 3...More

          The staff understood we were there to go on a safari and did all we could to get the best from our stay. Early morning starts but so worth it. Rangers were determined that we would see as much as was possible.
