Our Personal Opinion
Wow-what an amazing lodge. A great place for honeymooners. You have to climb over 100 stairs to reach the main area of the lodge and although this may sound hectic, it isn't as they have little resting areas as you go along to take in the scenery around you. You will need this bit of exercise though; to work up an appetite for what awaits you. The staff were wonderful and are prepared to spoil you, they even arranged a private 5-course dinner in our suite. The game rangers are very knowledgeable and we were fortunate enough to see little cheetah cubs on one of our safari drives.
