          Owner Joyce made us feel right at home. The cabins are well-designed and comfortable. The waterfalls near the lodge make for a great hike and swim. Home cooked food was delicious. Perfect place to end or start a safari.

          The lodge will provide transport for you. This is how my wife and I arrived. Just let them know with some advance warning so they can plan -- and they will pick you up.
