    Charming lodge. Friendly staff. Good food and beautiful location. Abraham is the most kind and caring person. Great way to relax after a 2 week mobile safari. Would definitely recommend this lodge as it is located about 25 minutes from the airport.

    Perfect lodge, perfect cottages, very clean, we liked the pool, the outdoor shower, the banks of Thamalakane rivet, the birds. Everybody was friendly, helpful, there's nothing to criticize. The lodge is very close to Maun, we made daytrips to Moremi.
