Just amazing!
This is a little piece of heaven. I would rate this place 5star. All staff are so friendly and helpful. The little bungalows are so lovely and comfortable. Serviced morning and evening! Lovely pool. Very safe area to explore the village and shops. Shearwater helped us with transfers and some amazing activities/experiences. I am definitely going back to this beautiful place.

8/10 Very good

Nice lodges but perhaps avoid the spa
I upgraded from a tent to a lodge which was very comfortable and clean, however there was no hairdryer in the room. You have to ask at Reception for a hairdryer and then they only have a limited number, of which they had run out! A hairdryer seems a very basic requirement for the standard of room. Also the "spa" doesn't seem very hygienic. Nice that they offer this service however I don't think they cleaned manicure/pedicure tools between customers.

Nice lodge
Really enjoyed my stay. Only ate breakfast here1 x There are tours staying here. I booked an extra night here after my tour. Lodge has large areas for dining, 2 bars, nice pool area and front porches on individual units Decor inside and grounds were in great shape. Safes & coffee bar are a nice convenience in rooms. Front desk staff was super helpful & appreciated. Location is quiet & convenient easy walk to Moma Africa dining. Shearwater books all activities in area & airport tranfers or taxi.
