We spent 10 days here in 2005 and I have to say I have never had such a fantastic holiday in my life. The rooms were incredibly impressive with dark heavy wood furniture, large ensuites with shower enclosures and roll top baths large enough for 2 people (one of them 6 foot 4 and the other pregnant!!). Our room had a forest view and from our room we could see a tufted eagle. We had breakfast in our room several times and ate it on the balcony, even though you are in a hotel it is very secluded and you felt very private.
The food is first class and the service is second to none. we took a trip into a local safari park that involved a very early start and a picnic was packed for us. it had pastries and cold meats and cerial and yogurt and it was just amazing.
the staff are really helpful and pleasant and nothing is too much trouble for them. we had several days out which zimbali organised and they were brilliant.
there are two swimming pools, one is up at the lodge itself and the other is a saltwater swimming pool which over looks the sea. you cant swim in the sea as there are sharks and rocks. the one by the sea is quite a way from the hotel, its not too far to walk but they do operate and hourly shuttle there and back.
i couldnt rate this hotel highly enough.
