We had a brilliant 2 night stay here in early November. The weather was perfect, our safari experience was brilliant, and the home cooking was great. The lodge was perfectly comfortable and quiet and the fact that we had game drives in two separate game...More

Thank you for this positive review. It's good to know that our guests have had a great experience. And great for us to know that we are doing the right thing.

My sense is that Carnarvon--with its excellent guide, Propie--puts a premium on working hard to give you the experience you desire. There was no doubt here that you are in Africa and the focus is on giving you an intimate, non-commercialized experience. Highly recommended!
