Planned this for a brief Mom/Son summer getaway, and this did not disappoint. We drove in, did the self-driving tour through the park and saw/fed plenty of animals, and then we went over to the lodge and our cabin. We stayed in the Cheetah, and we were very pleased with the size, and comfort of this place. It was perfect for two, and the AC was great! The water pressure was awesome, and my son said it reminded him of a "Harry Potter tent". We had a delicious breakfast the next morning and then went on the "behind the scenes" tour. The highlight was most definitely feeding the giraffes. As we were leaving, my son asked if we could come again next year. I told him we would definitely plan on it! Everyone was super friendly, kind, willing to answer questions, and I can't say enough nice things. We will definitely be back!
