    Amazing!

    Everything met our expectations and more. Staff was very helpful with everything. Very exiting game drives. Truly amazing. The lodge is beautiful and the rooms are definitely 5 stars. Food was outstanding most of the time. You have a luxurious feeling when there is a limit of 10 occupants on the lodge. Recommended 100% from our side!
