Beautiful location, lots of wildlife and peaceful. The lady who ran the place was lovely
The drive is very long and off road, which is ok if you know but would be impossible at night. There was no hippos but I understand we just were unfortunate. There were small touches that were forgotten.
Stayed in the Owl House. Very beautiful and spacious for the 2 of us. Only 1 bathroom which may be an issue with more people. The grounds were beautiful, very special having animals walking around.
Amazing place to stay when exploring the area. Made our time here very special!
The room was very impressively decorated, loved the bathroom and views from the private deck were just lovely. Animals roaming on the lawn, a river beyond, peace and quiet, what more could a guest ask for. A few more tea bags would not have gone astray.
Dinner and breakfast was ordinary, nothing to rave about and little thought to presentation and service. Staff need more hospitality training
Food was excellent
Would prefer a tv in room although it is not common for lodges to have a tv in room
