    Absolutely stunning location, gorgeous chalet. Views either walking the estate, sitting on the deck or kayaking on the lake were fabulous.

    The lodge facilities were great. Loads of space for a family of 4, stunning views, great staff and a wonderful trip up the Sani Pass (with Roger of Sani Pass tours - highly recommended).

    The trip was awesome. The facilities and the staff were amazing. Pinky, Chris, Londiwe and Sebelo were just awesome. Views are stunning.The one thing that took a bit of the shine off the stay was the cost of dinner and breakfast. It is certainly not value for money for the local yokels. The Sani pass is a must with breath taking views - warning though- it is not for the faint hearted.
