We stayed here for four nights at the end of August. The room was fantastic with a big and comfy bed, veranda overlooking a dry riverbed, huge bathroom with outdoorshower and bathtub.
The park is huge so it's not like being in a zoo where you are guaranteed to se all the animals. But the game drives were very good thanks to our guide Fani, and tracker Kenny. We saw a few animals that I've never seen before as bushbaby and genet, which was very fun. We also saw lots of lions, and of course all other kinds of animals.
The lodge isn't fenced which we think is great. At night we heard lions roar close to the lodge, and we saw what they think was a leopard walking across our neighbour's veranda. A ranger takes you to and from your chalet at night so you feel very safe. In the daytime our chalet were visited by monkeys and antelopes, so you feel like you're in the middle of the bush. Which of course, you are.
The food was also great, and we were served boma style braai, private dinner in the wine cellar, lunch overlooking the waterhole etc.
I've been to several other places like this, and I must say that this is among the best places I've been. And the staff is really to thank for that, as well as an amazing ambiance and of course the fantastic game drives.
