  • 10.0.Exceptional

    We knew seeing zebras are not guaranteed, because they are wild animals. So we were so happy that we saw 7 of them grazing in the morning right by our breakfast table! The tent cabin we were in was very private. The dinner and breakfast we had there were delicious. The owners were so friendly. They even sold us the napkin holders from our dinner table when we said we liked them and we wouldn't be able to make it to buy them where she said she bought them. Loved everything about the stay!

    In splendid isolation, all recently built in a contemporary style and to a high standard, the lodges are quite large with great views and very comfortable. Reception with lounge and restaurant serves excellent freshly prepared food.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Disappointing

    The lodge is beautiful and the views superb. However, we did not feel particularly welcome and the meal we had was overly expensive and of average quality, there was no choice at any point. It was difficult to find the lodge and to access you really need a 4WD SUV.

    Nettes Hotel mit Liebe zum Detail in der Naehe von JBay. Sehr persoenliches Service, Zimmer sauber und sehr ruhig. Kleines Fruehstueck inklusive, sehr gutes Abendessen gegen Bezahlung. Kein WLAN in den Zimmern.
