    Can't speak highly enough of this place, our stay was amazing. Excellent accommodation & friendly staff. Lots of fun exploring the area, but an unexpected highlight was going for early morning walks in the Lodge grounds & watching the animals play, even having a chat...More

    The room was a nice little bungalow and mine was placed near the back in the middle. Was a very reasonably sized room with a nice shower area. Bed had a mosquito net over it and was very nice and comfortable.

    We loved the rooms-they were traditional round houses with modern amenities and very clean. The food was great and the staff were very helpful. I loved having the animals roaming amongst the houses. Definitely recommend this place!
