This lodge is situated on the Marico River and one enjoys the elephants and other animals drinking at the river. The game rangers are very well informed and we saw the big 5 on one drive. The cuisine was outstanding. It is well worth a visit to this lodge.

No platforms, and not many birds. But the open jeeps go near enough to the animals for great photos.
