The only lodge within the park and based on the river it is a lovely place to explore the area from and boasts one of the only lodges with an all female guiding team! With an emphasis on inclusivity and social impact they have wheelchair access, a huge range of amenities and electric boats and vehicles. Despite being on the larger side they make every effort to make each client feel special and certainly achieve it!

The all female guiding team is of a very high standard, competing to have a place in a male dominated industry means female guides often have to work harder to be taken seriously. All the guides here were incredibly friendly and knowledgeable and really got to know the individual clients usually joining them for afternoon tea before the evening sundowner cruises. It was great to see such a high standard of guiding and even nicer to see strong females holding their own!
The only lodge within the park it is perfectly located to begin spotting wildlife from your very own room. You can easily spend a few hours on the decks watching who comes down to the river. We spotted an elephant drinking right next to the deck when we visited but did hear a story about a leopard giving birth to two tiny cubs under the deck a few years ago!! Because you are already in the park you miss the mad rush at the gates and are able to explore both the river and park further and usually without so many others around which is a real bonus.
The food here was delicious and some of my favourite on safari, with huge number of choices of places to eat they make the most of the grounds and offer to set up private dinners in numerous spots. Each area also has some great menus and we really enjoyed eating here, even the sundowner snacks were elevated from the usual nuts and crisps which was a nice touch!
