Oustanding. The highlight of our holiday.
Loved it! I thought the price for this stay was expensive until I went. It was outstanding value for money. We arived aroud 2pm and one of the guides helped us to our room in one of the cabins. This was small but very well laid out and furnished to a high standard. At 5PM we went on our first game drive followed by the best quality buffet I have had. Ever! The quality and variety of the food was outstanding and even included Osterich and Kudu stakes. The following morning we had our second game drive where we saw Lion and Elephant. Tracey our guide was well informed and very friendly as were all of the staff I met at the lodge. This was the highlight of our 2 week trip. truely outstanding, expensive for one night but very good value when you think about how much it must cost to run the operation and the high quality of what you get for your money.
gary, gb2 night romance trip
