Lovely interiors and staff. We felt this was not an ideal fit for a honeymooning couple as we were paired with a cranky American family to go on our 4x4 tours with, and were 'forced' to sit with them for lunch and dinner which was awkward. We were not really allowed to sit away from the group for meals, only on our 'honeymoon' dinner at our tent. However, the game viewings were very successful, seeing lots of animals.

The place is great but the staff is not...which is a shame...in muchenje everyone was always hanging around the common space having a drink...this was never the case in banoka, the place wasn't 'cozy' at all, ...not even in the swimingpool, cos it was disgustingly dirty. the lodge was run by very young people (below 30) with white t-shirts and felt like being in a summer camp...(vs. muchenje which felt like being at the managers house). the food was quite bad and the staff wasn't very friendly and paid no attention to details..they put us with 2 couples in their 60's who only spoke french; so we spent the full 3 days translating everything the guide was saying to them, cos they spoke no english...and there were otehr young couples in the camp so we couldn't understand why didn't they group us by age (as they'd done in muchenje). also we didn't have much chance to choose the activities...they were always dictated. and we did tones of game drive...since we had already been in a dry area in muchenje we would probably have prefered a wet camp with more mokoro-activities...since it ended up being quite repetitive. HOWEVER, the tents were amazing, and being in the tent sundeck reading and just hearing the noise of the elephants around was priceless...we loved our tent...and as part of the honeymoon pack they organized a dinner under the stars for the two of us which was really special...also in okawango we got to see the lions very closely which we really liked. so, that stay had really really nice parts too. but i don't think i'd recommend that camp
