Thank you for your kind words and review on your stay with us. Our entire team is delighted to hear that you enjoyed our food & beverage offering, rooms and our commitment to excellent service. We regret that you did not see as much wildlife as you had hoped for and unfortunately, whilst we do our best to provide quality wildlife viewing for all our guests, this is sometimes beyond our control. We make every effort to advise our guests that insects prevail in the wild and are sometimes seasonal. Although we can not control these, we do brief our guests both verbally and in writing on precautions they may take and provide necessary repellents in rooms, vehicles and public areas, where required. Again, we thank you for choosing to stay with us and wish you a Happy New Year!

Hello, Gamedrives are included in the rates. Basically, there are two game drives per day; morning and afternoon. However, there are other optional activties which come at an extra cost eg..night game drives, crater hikes, nature walks.

Yes, they are see through unless they have recently changed them. Not really unusual for the African Lodges, as we have stayed in several that were designed this way. That said, I would love to see them offer more privacy.

"We had room 6 and 7 both great."
"All rooms are luxurious and give you privacy as they're separated from one another unlike some camps."
"Book the Finch Hattons Suite (it has a private pool!)"
"The further rooms are more of an adventure when being walked home in the evening"
"The rooms closest to the reception facing the lake"
