    I would rate Lawdons as one of the top (few) in the west-side of the Delta: Spacious rooms, great pool, affordable excursions and situated next-to-the road makes them easily accessible and convenient. Food is good and affordable, staff friendly and helpful. Great place to stay!

    No problem reaching Drotsky's in a 2WD. The road is tarred right to the turn-off and then a few 100m's of gravel road to reception. The area is very sandy in general but if you stick to the main roads you will not have a... More
