"The best lodge ever - congratulations all round”- June 2014
Our fourth safari, first in Tanzania, and we weren't expecting to be amazed ... but we were. From the reception at the airstrip to the thoughtful going-away present, this was pitched perfectly. The rooms are superb, roomy, air-con and well-equipped and the facilities are top notch;. The food is brilliant and would be even if we weren't a one hour flight from the city; there's some stand-out cooking going on here much of which stood comparison with the last meal we had before travelling in a Rhodes restaurant; seriously it's that good.
What stood out though was the care and attention that's being shown. Had I arrived looking to pick holes in what's on offer, it would have been impossible - faultless service included the welcome reception at the airstrip and the staff numbers (high all round but with your own personal "butler"). Pretty much everything we needed was anticipated and we felt truly valued and welcomed to the lodge.
The game experience was of an equally high standard. Our warm and gentle guide, Vitus, was so knowledgeable and introduced us to a wide variety of animals, sometimes seeming to do requests. The location is unquestionably a major factor in this but we felt very satisfied in the hands of such a pro.
Expect to be enthralled by the sounds from the nearby river - at one time my wife thought the hippos were outside our room but unfortunately they were still in the water 30 metres from our room.
This place could spoil you for the rest of Africa. We shall cerainly be back - probably for our third honeymoon (our agent sent these 65+ pensioners on a honeymoon!)
