We actually stayed at Ivory Lodge as we were upgraded due to a fire at River Lodge. I honestly don't have the words to describe this place! I could cry thinking about it!!
What a beautiful lodge, elegant, pristine, immaculate and so well maintained.The staff were incredible, always one step ahead of your needs and get to know you so well in such a short period of time.
We had some…
Out of this world! It was simply magical, surreal! The facilities were beautiful, the attention to detail absolutely amazing, the staff so attentive, we felt very spoilt. The game drives were the most amazing thing we'd ever done and experienced. The food was really fabulous.
