We ( A group of twenty) arrived quite late and were warmly received and were allocated our rooms very quickly. The evening buffet was plentiful and tastey but not so much variety. the managerin Kylie did her best to mix with the guests but seemed to be a one man show but was very helpful and patient. A great place to stay especially when you walk home to your rondavel and see impalas and gnus grazing in the grounds. I wish you the best of luck as you are offering a really good deal.

Hi Patrick,
Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. Its great to hear even after a long day you were able to enjoy the buffet and animals on the property and still received value for money on a quick stay. Thank you for the wishes and we do hope you will be retuning soon.

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 with a nosey giraffe who suddenly appeared to say hello! Thanks for a great stay.......

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.
