Verified reviewexcellent

Just spent a whole week with my brother and a friend there. absolutely fabulous. Sinah cooks the best dinners and a new chef Francis just started. All very good. Venison was michelin star quality... game viewing was excellent. We only lacked the buffalo for the big 5. Waterhole will do the rest in combination with the Spa. Dominique has strong hands :)

Verified reviewexcellent

I had a great couple of days at the lodge. i was on my own and John and Dominique (the mangers) could not have been more gracious and welcoming--i felt at home immediately. the lodge was recently renovated and is lovely--very stylish design but still incredibly warm and comfortable. And the food and wine couldn't be beat. I've been on quite a few safaris and John is definitely in the top tier of rangers --very knowledgable but with a funny, engaging manner. I would highly recommend a stay there!
