"An amazing tranquil bush lodge set along the river bank with its original bush charm. The rooms were comfortable clean and spacious. There was so much wildlife within the camp like the warthog mowing the lawn, bushbuck, waterbuck and rainbow selection of birds in the beautiful trees that surround this lodge. The food was simple and delicious. The Serving staff Emmah, Battelion and Joe were brilliant - nothing was too much trouble - always with a smile. Patrick who been with lodge for 15 yrs was also so friendly and helpful. My 3 kids had a ball in the beautiful pool set amongst the rocks where my husband and I relaxed and were offered refreshments from the excellent staff. The game drives were filled with lions and elephants but sadly never got to see that elusive leopard. We were lucky enough to see the cheetah. This lodge has the true bush lodge charm that is well managed and maintained by a brilliant manager Rapula."
