We phoned to booked and confirm the arrival but when we got to the venue the manager on duty was not expecting us. Already on the back foot now the lodge turned everything around. A quick drink on the deck whilst they organized everything for us. Dinner turned into a romantic evening for the two of us under the stars, in the boma with a bon-fire.
Our room was out of this world. Our own private jacuzzi on the deck with an awesome view.
Thank you to everyone and especially Deon for helping us.

Superior accommodation is offered in 7 en-suite chalets, positioned for optimum privacy; all have private patios with magnificent magnificent views.
