A rather unique experience for us

Rooms were more basic than we expected but the service and meals were very good and we very much enjoyed our stay.

What a place to see Carmine Bee-eaters

Recently run now by managers for owners - nice couple.

Accom strange at first all open fronted but you get used to it. Boat trips as required by us with Small both mokoro and small boat. Ten S Africans in a group were other guests and keen birdwatchers/fishermen.

6 of us went to see the carmine-bee-eaters at the Red Cliffs took around 1hour each way by boat but well worth the trip.

Remote and unique location.

Not the easiest place to get to. A mix up over the pick-up proved problematic. It would perhaps be better if the entrance was signposted, and some method of contact available in emergency. [ perhaps at the village?]

I would put a note of caution to travelling novices, had we not been to Africa before this could have turned into a very difficult day.

Having said that, the journey is well worth it. The location is unique, the activities varied. Although the lodge is primarily geared towards fishing, the birdwatching is very good, while night boat trips were interesting.

The atmospehere was very friendly and relaxed with good food.
