Warrick (ranger) was fantastic. He really made the game drives exciting and interesting. A lot of fun. The little things like warm water bottles for the morning game drives was a pleasent surprise. The staff at the lodge were always very welcoming and friendly and really took care of us and our needs. We would defenitley recommend it to friends and family.

The Lodge was lovely with well appointed chalets and a very attentive staff. The breakfast was outstanding, lots of fresh fruit, homemade muffins still warm from the oven, really nice sides and eggs to taste. Our guide was enthusiastic, very knowledgeable and really went out of his way to make sure we had a great experience. You can't go wrong with this lodge. My family will definitely be going back.
