The lodge facilities
The dining, under a thatched roof is open to the swimming pool and the garden. There is an upstairs lounge overlooking the river as well as a boma under a shady acacia tree where we have afternoon tea.
Dining area, food and cuisine
Breakfast is a continental buffet with the option of a cooked breakfast. Lunches are buffet-style with a variety of salads, warm dishes, cheeses and cold meats. Dinner is a set menu. We serve starter, main course and dessert.
Our bread is home made as are many of our jams and honeys. We are happy to meet your dietary requirements and preferences. Your professional guide will join you for breakfast and take the opportunity to discuss your day's activities.
All guests and managers sit together for meals, making for great conversations and new friendships. However, should you prefer a private table, please let a staff member know. Whenever possible, Phil and Gabi, the lodge owners, will join you for lunch and pre-dinner drinks.
Between the lodge and riverfront is a lawn area with shady indigenous trees. Warthog, mongoose, monitor lizard and other small animals are often seen on the lawn. The trees, shrubs and ornamental plants attract a wide variety of birds.
Whilst relaxing on the verandah, it is possible to record over 50 different species of birds. We have a resident pair of barn owls who have nested in the roof of the lodge every year, for the past 15 years, they are often seen at night perched in the trees looking at the guests.
At night, elephant and hippo can often be seen from the lodge. Please do not be tempted to leave the lodge to get a closer view of these animals!
