“A most wonderful weekend, a most beautiful place”
Reviewed 31 March 2016

Danforth Yachting is a wee touch of paradise within one of the best countries in Africa. The hosts, the staff, and the ambiance was warm, welcoming and delightful. The food was as good as you'd find in a 5* venue anywhere in the world, and the Chef and his staff provided special dietary catering that was outstanding. You couldn't ask for a better balance of intimate surroundings and outstanding activities, and you couldn't find nicer people as hosts and welcoming staff.

We stayed here for three nights and I wish it had been longer. From the moment we arrived we were throughly looked after. After travelling a gin and tonic in the infinity pool was perfect. The food was excellent and loved the afternoon home made cake every day. Snorting, kayaking and scuba diving kept us occupied. Will definely return one day!!

Hosts Michelle and Howard are excellent. They couldn't be more helpful and accommodating. You can tell how much pride they take in their beautiful lodge and how they have worked so hard to achieve such a high standard. They have a wealth of knowledge of the area and various activities available and are wonderful people. All the staff were friendly and helpful and the food was also five-star. Altogether, superb. Thank you.

Small scale, very comfortable place to stay with terrific hosts who facilitate your stay in whatever way suits you best, from very active to quiet R&R. The location is beautiful. Apart from hosts Michelle and Howard and their excellent support team, the outstanding feature was the food. We loved going out on the boats to snorkel and to see fish Eagles close up. The rooms have every facility you need, but in case it matters to you, the decor is not contempory chic.

We really enjoyed our 2 days with Michelle and Howard and their excellent staff. Danford Yachting is a lovely place to stay, everything is taken care of with an eye for detail and perfection and the food is absolutely great. The rooms are comfortable and tasteful, all with stunning lake views. Hope we can come back one of the days!
