    Village owned safari lodge

    Trevlig lodge med bra meny men mer lokal anrättning än gourmet. Charmig personal från lokala byn utanför parken. Sjunger och dansar lokala sånger vid ex vis födelsedag. Bra guidade safaris i Madikve som tillåter jeep utanför vägarna. Stort vilt och fågelliv med max fordon vid viltet. Bra samarbete och att rekommendera för bra safari upplevelse med lokal guide. Boendet i tält är i behov av renovering men är rent och prydligt.

    Service pas la hauteur mais Safaris fantastiques

    Lodge composé de 12 tentes disposées le long de la rivière. Nous étions à la 10ème. De la réception à la chambre, il faut minimum 7 minutes. Pas de wifi dans les tentes et quasi inutilisable à la réception. Le safari du matin commence à 5h30, précédé d’un thé/café à 5h15. Celui de l’apres midi à 15h30. Chaque safari dure environ 4 heures. Les safaris sont inclus. Il n’y a que 3 4x4 pour 24 personnes soit 8 personnes par véhicule. Par contre un 4x4 était en panne un jour et nous nous sommes retrouvés à 10 par véhicule. C’est beaucoup moins confortable. Il faudrait 4 véhicules et passer à 3 en cas de panne. Le service pour le petit déjeuner est très vite dépassé si tous les 4x4 arrivent à la suite. Je demande un thé supplémentaire ils le servent après 10mn à la table d’à côté qui n’avait rien demandé mais qui l’accepte. Si vous souhaitez des œufs il faut être patient. Lorsqu’ils arrivent pas de toast (sorry forgotten) En clair le service n’est pas à la hauteur de l’établissement. Lors du Check out personne pour récupérer les bagages. On a porté les bagages 10mn jusqu’à la réception. C’est du jamais vu pour un hôtel de ce prix. Heureusement que les safaris sont extraordinaires ils sauvent l’impression générale du séjour.
