This lodge is set right in the middle of a game reserve and provides a great base for your safari adventures.
There are approximately 10 lodges nicely spread across the property. The main building area has a small pool and lovely decked area overlooking a watering hole where animals visit through the day. There are sun loungers, tables and chairs, with free towels provided for guests to use.
The food is good and occasionally interesting. I believe the shepard’s pie is made from impala meat! Breakfast and lunch are served in the main dining area, while evening meals are taken around a large camp fire. This makes for a very friendly a social experience with everyone eating together.
The lodge is one of a few safari accommodations that allow children. We travelled with our 6 and 8 year old and they had a great experience. You get two game drives each day. One at sunrise and a second at about 3pm.
Our guide, Verner (called Uncle Bernard by our kids), was very friendly and made the trip fun and interesting, while trying to locate as many animals as possible. Unlike other safaris, this is truly off-road at times. You venture through the bush on a land rover with enough seats for around 9 people. Our vehicle never had more than 6 people so it did not feel crowded.
We stayed for 5 days/4 nights which was about the right time for us. I know some guests were staying for 2 weeks and return every year. However, from our own experience, we had seen everything we had hoped for and felt ready to move on.
Thanks to all of the team at Gomo Gomo, we had a superb time. I would definitely recommend this safari adventure to all ages and also families.
