Been here twice in two years. Food is outstanding. Chalet is neat and clean. Rooms are big and spacious. Loved my view. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Favourite was the fire in the main section where I could read my book in peace.

Hi Jennie. I personally travel from Ifafa to Mbotyi regularly and have not had any problems on the way. The route that most of our guests have taken is Port Edward, Bizana (Bypass), Magusheni (Yaka Garage), Flagstaff, Lusikisiki then Mbotyi. I normally either fill at Yaka Garage Magusheni or Lusikiski without problems. The times really depends on what time you leave as I generally travel at 4am in the morning then it only takes 4 to 4.5 hours as you tend to miss the hustle and bustle in towns. Please feel free to call and speak to any onme of us at the lodge if you are needing any furher information
