10/10 Exceptional

Excellent lodge . The Park is spectacular . We were not crazy about the game ranger - very sexist and opinionated - SIMO was his name - we also got into a situation with a bull elephant and frankly handled it badly. The spa treatments were excellent . The food quality and quantity was very good indeed . Would recommend and if you get Simo as a guide just ask for a change in game ranger and it will then be a highly rated experience .

Superior Safari Lodge with excellent views
We had a wonderful 2 night stay, the staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. The food was excellent. The room and views superb. The morning and evening game drives included in the room price made this the best safari lodge we have ever stayed in. We will return.
