    Yes we saw the big five, had good local coffee and gin tonic. Room was big with a small private pool to relax between our drives. One of the staff team was really good, the 2nd was so-so. Very good dinner.

    Room for improvement for the food, especially breakfast and lunch. Make sure you get a room on the river side! Otherwise, forget the view. As for the game drives, I was missing stronger rules to control the guests that don't behave, that don't respect the animals, that are border line with the other guests.

    Location is stunning with a great view on the river. The room and decorations are original, the bathroom was spacious as well as the welcome and the dinning area. The Christmas menu while buffet was well thought through and the decoration was also great. Would have been even better with a Christmas tree. Important info that the dining area is open while they have fans it can become really hot.

    We had some issues on the first night with our room as we got bats so while the staff was trying to help we could not really sleep. Our room got changed on the second day what was better however the maintenance in general needs more attention. The A/C was not working and needed maintenance as well as the outside plunging pool was very hot! All meals are done on the buffet basis with somewhat limited selection of wines and self service. The staff needs to pay more attention in general to guests and the service. We found sometimes food were not covered (Yoghourt was not cooled) and flies were in it.

    As if right on cue, the minute i arrived to the main foyer, there were a herd of elephants grazing in the background which was amazing. The location is superb with loads of wildlife surrounding the area, I saw elephants, giraffe, buffalo and zebra all within minutes of the lodge.

    It was quite tricky to navigate to but all part of the adventure. The lodge is quite run down and in need of an update. The food was good but i arrived 10 minutes after the start time of dinner and 1 of the 3 or so main dishes in the buffet had already gone and was not replenished. The room has an impressive interior however backs on to a fence which kind of spoils the view. It would have been nice to have fly-screen doors in the room so you could leave them open at night
