The rooms were excellent, the food was very good and the service was the best I've ever seen. Very friendly and they take time to explain things. The Ferrari Safari was perfect, we saw buffalos, lions, elephants (in front of the lodge) a rhino, cheetha, zebras,... It was wonderful!!!

Expectations were exceeded! Amazing place in a magnificent park. The room we had could had not been better! Great balcony to enjoy the nature and animals that walk just in front of you. Very knowledgeable guides on the game drives and very profesional and friendly staff at the lodge. One of the best places I have ever stayed at!

Absolutely loved this lodge. Staff were superb, friendly, welcoming and very helpful. The food was plenty and of a high standard. Having no wifi and tv makes it the perfect break to appreciate where you are. Isaaks game drives were very informative, successful and with his sense of humor and great stories, highly enjoyable. Was great to go for a... More
