    We had a lovely two bedroom villa for accommodation and it was very tidy and clean. The restaurant was nice and lunch at the pool was especially pleasant. The lodge was very convenient for game viewing - which was amazing!

    This lodge is close to the main road. Rooms are fine but furniture needs updating. No air conditioning in the rooms or elsewhere. The main dining room does not have netting with insects coming in frequently. View from the pool of the lake is fabulous.
