    Ignore the reviews of poor food or bad/ unfriendly service. The lodge is a three star (according to the sign at the gate), the food is four stars and the service from the staff is so friendly and enthusiastic, it has to be five stars!...More

    A great place for a peaceful getaway. All the luxuries you could wish for while still feeling like you are in the 'bush'. Staff pleasant and helpful, food excellent. I recommend staying longer than 1 night and I hope to return for a longer stay.
