On arrival we were met by Justine who told us she had upgraded us to a Premium Room which meant we had superb, uninterrupted views across the lake, exactly as we remembered them from our first visit in 1993. The position of the lodge on top of the hill is great, providing stunning views as we drove out each morning, stopping to look at the African Hawk Eagle and its nest below us.
Our room was large, airy and very comfortable and clean. There was plenty of storage space, a safe and a refrigerator.
Service was excellent in every way. Even though there was a hen-party, followed by a lavish wedding taking place, our needs were never neglected and everyone was extremely friendly and helpful whilst under pressure.
All meals were beautifully presented and delicious with a good choice of dishes.
In just two days we fitted in two game drives, a game walk, two lake cruises and a visit to the local village and school. The guides were very enthusiastic, informative and knowledgable and conscious of our comfort.
The Lodge has a most beautiful infinity pool which was immaculately clean and there is a poolside bar serving drinks. There is a television room for those that want to keep up with the soccer scores! There are many bird and mammal books around for guests to use.
