Holiday to

Jen Sheriff

The rooms and food were excellent. The staff was very helpful and engaging. We enjoyed our safari driver and he even gave us a tour through the nearby village (which was his home). Unfortunately, there were fires burning near the lodge one day which some members of our party found limited their enjoyment of the beauty surrounding us.

Holiday to

Teresa & Tyler McQueen

Food was absolutely amazing - probably our best meals of the trip! Safari guides were extremely knowledgeable and worked hard to get great views of many different animals. All staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. Had a fantastic time here - didn't want to leave! We were upgraded to bush villa for our honeymoon, which was extremely spacious, modern, and quite comfortable considering our remote location!
