The friendly welcome we received from Katrin & Joachim set the stage for a very comfortable visit. They were flexible and helpful giving us tips on what to do next. The breakfast was great the environment they have created is good for unwinding. We would like to visit them again on our next trip to the region.

The place is clean and comfy, it was beyond what we expected. The backyard is basically a breathtaking jungle. The pool area is great but unfortunately the weather was not in our favor. The hospitality is excellent. Badgers Lodge is a great place to stay for those who are travelling on a budget and an excellent venue for absolute relaxation....
