Great New and Modern Lodge. Fantastic and Friendly Staff. Beautiful lounge and pool area to relax in. Definitely stand a good chance of seeing the Big Five on well organised Game Drives in New Vehicles with informative rangers and trackers. Great stay.

I believe kids are allowed as I saw many families. However did not see babies. Game drives are great and you are able to see the Big 5 However you need to stay a minimum of 3 nights to ensure you see all of them.
