Beautiful setting, wonderful, knowledgeable guides, great food, comfortable room, warthogs grazing outside - what else could you wish for? If I didn't have to get up at 5 am, it would have been absolutely perfect! Just kidding, it was perfect anyway.

We stayed here for 3 nights recently and the only words to describe it adequately is "Awesome". Everything from the welcome drink onward was simply great. The program was quite demanding with sunrise game drives, midday cruise and sunset game drives. The guides are first rate especially Flo who has a great personality and a deep knowledge and love for...

What a great introduction to safaris! I was there with a Road Scholar Tour. The lodge is gorgeous, and the rooms are elegant. I like that all the guides are women. Our guide Anna was very well informed, both on the boat (which is solar powered!) and the safari vehicles, which are electric, therefore not very noisy as well as...
