It was an amazing place, great food and only 5 villas. Every room and common aeras have a nive view on an open space and drinking spot. You almost don't need to go on game drive, everything is happening in front of you.

Outstanding! Guides Lazi and Lucky A+, the lodge, the waterhole out back, the rooms, the food and the people- world class , saw elephants, lions, a zebra kill, rhinos, giraffes, water buffalo, hippos, warthogs and more. Morning tea and sundown drinks are the best.
