This was definitely not as advertised when I visited in March. The lodge was a large bed inside the family home which only seemed to have men in it. I was a single female traveling alone with a driver. There wasn't even a door just a curtain. It was right opposite the station, there was nothing else around. There was no en suite bathroom of any description. They offered me a chalet in the area opposite, these were just being built and were no more than sheds that we would have in gardens back home in England. I was not impressed. My driver was staying in a hotel a fair drive away but luckily they were able to fit me in and save the day. I hope things have improved there but deluxe holiday lodges on a safari plain is not what I saw. Saddened me because I was looking forward to the trek.

The lady who ran the lodge was friendly and helpful, and it is conveniently located right next to Ohiya railway station. Having the historic railway station next door was quite appealing and convenient. The accommodation itself is worn out and for the price not great. Some basic maintenance would improve it dramatically. And dogs barking throughout the night were not conducive to sleeping. Was nice to sit in the neighbouring cafe by day drinking tea and getting some sunshine :-)
