After dreaming of safari in Africa my whole life, I was worried about my expectations being too high- and then this little private, pristine place blew them all out of the water. I can't say enough good things about my time here. I spent 6 nights in my beautiful eco-chalet, surrounded by pure silence, and the wild unspoiled beauty of...

An experience of a lifetime!! The wonderful and welcoming staff, the excellent food and thoughtful finishing touches make this lodge a winner. Sitting around the fire-pit with after dinner drinks, zebra and antelope at the nearby waterhole will stay in my memory for ever.

Stayed for three nights and wish it could have been longer. The food was fabulous, the accommodation so luxurious including a bath and outdoor shower and lovely toiletries. We had elephants drink from the splash pool while eating dinner on our first night! Macy and Lucy were so welcoming, your service was outstanding.

I had a 2-night stay there for my Honeymoon trip and it was simply unforgettable. We have Mr. Ganizani who took very good care of us and brought us luck to have got groups of Elephants to greet us when we are on the way going to the lodge and before we left. Inside the Hwange National Park, Ganizani also...

Animals at water hole visible for 5 minutes then dark. The food was very poor- all 9 of us left most of it both at dinner and breakfast! Unless you viewed from your room you could not see what animal tree were as the view from the main lodge area was obscured.

Beautifull place with nice accomodations in the middle of nowhere. Best experience in our trip to Botswana and Zimbabwe. The view from the dinner pace with the elephants is something I will never forget.

Was apprehensive that the game viewing would not be as good, as were not in the park. However, this was not the case at all. On our guided walk, we saw a massive herd of buffalo and wild dog and had elephant’s every night at the lodge. The food was fantastic and I love the lodge’s focus on sustainable tourism....
