Our stay at Zebra Lodge was wonderful. Great, friendly service, and beautiful scenery all added to the perfect honeymoon for my wife and I. Having the zebras walking around is also such an experience. We would easily recommend Zebra Lodge to any of our friends.

A totally different and enjoyable stay in an exceptional location. The lodge we stayed in was comfortable and spacious, and to draw the curtains in the morning to the faces of zebras looking in at us was quite amazing.
