We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. It is lovely having families spend time together in the bush and enjoying the amazing sightings that Madikwe and our waterhole/ hide have to offer.

Hi there. We have a total of six rooms at the lodge but normally take a maximum of ten guests so that it is small and intimate. However if one group takes out the lodge we take more than ten people on request.
