We stayed overnight at the Tankwa lodge on our way to Afrikaburn. We were very happy with the accommodation. The rooms were surprisingly modern with good quality linen. We would definitely recommend this for travellers that don't want to pay an arm and a leg, looking for bssic lodging. See you next year Tankwa Lodge!
