Wow we only had 1 night here to finish off our 2 week trip and we were spoiled! Rooms were upgraded at no extra costs and all meals were of great quality as usual ;) Friendly staff, lions roaring and a beautiful lodge, wish we had stayed for a week!

We took an overseas guest on the elephant walk at Glen Afric & she described it as "the best day of her life". It was amazing to be up close with the elephants & walk through the reserve with them. A truly unique experience & highly recommended.
