2/10 Poor

Kitchen outside, poor condition. Fridge had no shelves, not lockable. Monkeys opened it during the night and helped themselves. Property is advertised having a restaurant, was closed. All in all in dire need of maintenance and not attractive at all.

10/10 Exceptional

This lovely lodge's highlights are its kind and helpful staff and good food. The tasty dinners, including starter, salad, main dish, and dessert, were different each night of our 5-night stay. Don't miss the fascinating night walk along the lodge's grounds, where you can see glowing scorpions and possibly a bushbaby and other animals.

10/10 Exceptional

Hervorragendes Abendessen. Es gab täglich 3 Gänge mit unterschiedlichen Hauptgerichten zur Auswahl. Das Personal hat uns toll bei der Organisation von unseren Aktivitäten unterstützt. Kostenlose Führungen im angrenzenden Kuleni Park. Abends kann die Fütterung der Bush Babies beobachtet werden. Einrichtung ist zweckmäßig, aber sehr ordentlich und sauber. Wir hatten eine super Zeit dort.
