    We stayed here for one quick night after safari but before the long journey home to the US. The lodge was absolutely perfect— next time we will be sure to stay an extra day or two so as to fully enjoy everything the lodge has to offer. Beautiful grounds, immaculate cleanliness and Susan was an exceptional host!

    Unser Aufenthalt war rundrum ein Genuss und wir waren sehr begeistert. Am liebsten wären wir direkt noch ein paar Tage geblieben. Bei unserem nächsten Afrikaaufenthalt werden wir ganz sicher wieder hier übernachten und dieses Mal nicht nur als Ankunfts- / Abflughotel sondern länger bleiben. Das Ambiente, die Ruhe und der große gepflegte Garten mit Schwimmbad und Traumblick laden zum Erholen und Abschalten ein. Perfekter sehr freundlicher Service, sehr gute Betten und ein köstliches Frühstück mit großer Auswahl an reifem, frischen Obst (geht auch draußen auf der Terrasse unter einem Baum) runden das Glück ab. Eine gut sortierte Bar zu sehr fairen Preisen und ein sehr gutes Restaurant in der Nähe .... Hier kann man die Seele baumeln lassen und Abschalten ...
