Yet another perfect stay. Always refreshing, relaxing and pleasant. From the minute we checked in to the departure day, was super well organised. One of our all time favourite hotels. Always a joy to stay here.

I have stayed at Safaris Lodge several times and always been impressed by the receptionists. The welcoming of guests is excellent. Only been a bit disappointed to notice that the rebuilding of the restaurant and burnt section has not started yet after those years since the fire. Restaurant in the conference not comfortable. Otherwise enjoyed the place as usual.

As part of the holiday activities, a DJ was also arranged, who provided the music...
