Verified reviewexcellent

We had a wonderful stay at the lodge. It's a beautiful little bush retreat. We regret that we only booked for one night and I wouldn't recommend it just as a stop over on the panorama route, as it is located deep in the bush with an additional 20 min dirt road drive from where Google takes you but it's definitely worth it if you have the time. The staff is very friendly and the food was excellent but dinner is quite pricey. The rooms were beautiful, even nicer that on the pictures in a classic bush lodge style and they even upgraded our room for free. We will definitely try and come back again.

We loved the laid-back vibe of the lodge. Very peaceful and quiet with the river nearby for a morning cup of coffee on the rocks, the swimming pool opposite our house, and a beautiful big private boma for nighttime fire. We enjoyed a lovely 3-course meal at the restaurant one of the evenings. The staff were amazing - friendly, helpful and informative.
