The Lodge's ten chalets, built with a minimum of intrusion into the natural environment command magnificent views of the watercourse and surrounding vegetation. Guests can appreciate unbroken views of the river from the comfort of their beds through glass doors on two sides of the chalet. Rooms have air conditioning and large mosquito netting over the beds. All rooms have spacious en-suite bathrooms. The Lodge spa offers a variety of therapies providing the ultimate relaxing experience. All meals are included here. Morning off-road game drives are included as are evening safaris affording an opportunity to view unforgettable nocturnal animals and nighttime activities in the bush.
