My wife and I came to stay here for 2 days of our honeymoon.
I have nothing but great things to say about this place.
The welcome was so warm and friendly. All the staff were fantastic.
Our chalet was phenomenal, wonderfully decorated, fantastic bed, great facilities and the views were spectactular.
The food was outstanding. Breakfast, lunch and dinner. Good options and staff again were brilliant.
Our ranger did a great job, the drives were just such a great experience. Going out and spotting what you can.
We were very fortunate too as we managed to see all of the big 5. The rhino made an appearance for, what we were told, was the first time in 5 months!
We got really close to a herd of elephants, the water buffalo, both male and female lions and the cheetahs.
Our ranger also regularly asked what we'd like to do and provided us with blankets and ponchos, as the drives were cold. We also stopped during the drives for coffee and biscuits in the morning and beers and wine in the evening.
The pool gives spectacular views out over the valley too.
The house keeping was brilliant too, twice a day, while we were out on drives, the housekeeping came in and prepared your room foe you coming back.
My only regret was that we only had 2 nights. I just hope that I get the chance to come back here in the future.
*the only point I would add is our arrival was a little rushed, in that we got to the receptions at 2, and the time it took to get to the lodge/our room meant we'd to rush lunch and skip the complimentary hand massage to make the 3:30 drive. The hand massage would have been nice.....
