“The lodge is perfectly situated overlooking a salt pan where animals meet day and night. We enjoyed two great bushwalks with Koos and John, a night drive and a sundowner drive. We even saw six mighty lions passing the lodge so close that you could touch them… Food was fantastic and comfort regarding the very remote area very good. We’ll surely return!”
