Ein traumhaftes Fleckchen Erde. Afrika pur. Super Landschaft, tolle Tiere und freundliche Menschen. Bitte unbedingt den 6 Stunden Game-Drive buchen. Man sieht da noch einmal eine ganz andere Landschaft als auf dem 3-Stunden-Drive. Man ist quasi alleine unterwegs und hört außer der Natur nichts mehr. Paradiesisch. Toll ist auch, dass man sich auf der Lodge zu Fuß oder mit dem Rad alleine bewegen kann. Das hatten wir bisher noch nirgends. Wir empfehlen diese Lodge uneingeschränkt weiter!!
