Latest Reviews
Perhaps a bit more food selling in your shop especially when lots of visitors are expected to the lodge. Kitchen well stocked. Perhaps few match boxes in each lodge.

Suggest don't use cook if in Thendele Lodge (Giraffe) as is a bit hard for him to actually use your ingredients as you would. Many aspects of electronics on TVs etc don't work but otherwise is a very nice position.

We stayed at the lodge and were surprised by the amazing view from the lodge, the surroundings are one of the most beautiful we saw. And the lodge itself was more that we could have hoped for. Lots of space, the rooms well furnished, the living room welcoming and providing us with all we needed. We enjoyed it very much and were sorry to leave after getting to know our kind 'resident cook'. We can really recommend the lodge to anyone wanting to enjoy a very special environment!

Very good, but the bathrooms need to be upgraded.
