We arrived at the lodge where they were well prepared to receive us. The host, Francois, was outstanding in order to address our requirements, provide information of activities in the area and to let us feel welcome at the lodge. The lodge itself is well maintained and staff were also friendly and helpful. We had outstanding dinner every night prepared by a professional chef. All our needs were catered for and we really enjoyed the time at the lodge. The fact that we interacted with other pleasant guests also enhanced the welcoming atmosphere.

If you want to experience true South African hospitality, go and stay here! The owners are very friendly and easy going and the facilities are clean and stylish. We had the best breakfast of our whole trip at the beautiful breakfast table with a view of the bush. It is very quiet and a good place to relax.
