"Central Lodge review"

1 night Arrived 3 Aug 2013
"We were given a self catering apartment which was clean but basic. The staff on reception were very off hand when we arrived but we found all other staff to be courteous and attentive. We ate in the evening at Central Lodge and the food was fine, breakfast was basic but perfectly acceptable.

From here we visited the Giants Playground and Quiver Tree Forest which are very close to the town and both were excellent visits.

When we bought the permit for the Quiver Tree Forest at Greganius Farm we discovered that the farmer had 4 cheetah which were fed daily at 4.00pm (this is not in any guide book) so we went to the feeding session and, with other visitors, were allowed into the enclosure to get up very close to the cheetahs!"
