We were there the second time and again all things were perfect. The game drives with our guides were very informative and we saw many animals. The lodge is situated so beautiful and you can really enjoy.

We stayed there for 4 nights and had a wonderful ranger (Fourine) to show us around their property. At first we had a little trouble with the reservation but after an hour they fixed it and we could move into our room. The view on the deck is beautiful.

As mentioned by other reviewers, the lodge itself is ~7 km/30 min from the gatehouse (reached by 4wd), which itself is around 15 mins from the main road. Within 5 minutes of getting in the car, we found a herd of elephants at the...
