Mfuwe Lodge

Mfuwe Lodge

"Lucky with the leopards."

4 nights Arrived 6 Aug 2007
"A bit dissapointed that our chalet was on part of the river that had all but dried up but were still lucky to have elephants wallowing in the mud outside our room. Other chalets still had water in the river, must look lovely in the rainy season.

The guide who was with us for the whole three days was excellent. The game was good and we saw leopards every day, once in daylight. We even saw a pair of mating lions!

The food was good with very friendly African staff. Unfortunatley the English 'temporary' staff were not so good. Felt that as they were more expensive than the previous lodge drinks should have been free as was the case in the other lodge."

Makokola Retreat

Makokola Retreat

"Totally chilled!"

4 nights Arrived 10 Aug 2007
"Super beach and gardens just the place to unwind after the hard work of safaries. The chalet was fine although I do not think we got the superior room we had paid for it was a family room.

The view from the room of the beach was great to wake up to.

The food was good if you went to dinner early as the puddings tended to be all gone if you left it too late!

Not much oppurtunity to get out and about. ie to nearest town or Cape McClear unless you paid a lot of money for hotel excursions or so it semed."
