We stayed in the Chalets which are well appointed, comfortable and clean. Food was good, the staff friendly and very good service. We unfortunately could not spend enough time birding around the Lodge. Once again a Great Stay. Thank you Andrew and team.

We stayed for 1 night at Mashovhela as part of a G Adventures tour group.

I found it not to be as nice as the advert suggests. Its a bit run down. The young man who served us was very good and tried his best. Always cheerful and most helpful. The reception lady was also very friendly and helpful, Rose, I think?
