Kavita Lion Lodge review

Wow - this is another place that needs an overhaul. The bedlinen is still the same as 6 years ago and then it was all frayed, furred and faded so you can imagine how yukky it is to sleep in now. When we told Johanis - he didn't seem to think it needed an upgrade. Marianna who greeted us had NO idea about how to meet and greet - the shambles over moving our luggage took over an hour and in the end I wnet and marshalled the men and took control as we were fed up with waiting, She didn't brief us at all so when we were charged for the Rhino trip it came as a surprise - we paid it of course but it shouldn't have happened as it did.

Johanis was a moaner by the camp fire where we had our first course - we sat with him on our last night and got to know him which was lovely BUT he ought to conduct himself differently when dealing with all of his guests together. They got it wrong about my allergies - and then more than compensated to put it right. I think our food here was one of the best. Bathrooms and bedrooms need a paint job - bit of an upgrade if i were to go there again. I think your literature puts it on a par with Okanjima - it's so not!

Kavita Lion Lodge review

We were happy with the accomodation and the food.

We were most upset with the trip to see the Lions. We were asked when we arrived if we wanted to go on the trip that was leaving in 10 minutes or the next morning, we opted for the morning trip. The trip consisted of 40 minutes showing us the small school they have to educate children about Lions. 20 minutes trying to see Lions who had been fed and were mostly behind bushes. We were asked for a donation or to sponsor a Lion for a year at a considerable cost. We were charged N$200 each yet no mention was ever made of the cost, we expected it to be part of the package as it was assumed from the start that we were doing it. It felt like a promotion and we felt we were used as a money making venture.

Apparently if you have full board you get a free trip, B&B nothing and half board is not mentioned. I should've paid for lunch despite not being there, it would've worked out cheaper. We wouldn't go back.
