    My wife and I stayed at the lodge for four wonderful nights, and we were spoilt throughout our stay. The lodge has a wonderful atmosphere! Set between trees on a private concession with luxurious accommodation, an outdoor shower and a frequented waterhole right at your doorstep. There are so many wonderful things to note about this lodge and the staff who are involved in every detail. My highlight was spending our last night at the aptly named sleep out deck called “The Eye”.

    This tree house overlooks a waterhole and is equipped with a queen-size four post bed (complete with mozzie net), bathroom (with an incredible view) and a great selection of drinks. The staff went out of their way to ensure the luxury we had at the lodge, was also provided on this amazing deck in the middle of the bush. We spent the night drinking ice cold beers and star gazing whilst revelling in the sounds around us. I have never seen so many shooting stars and this alone is worth the visit. To top it off Elephants came down to drink during the night and as the sun was rising. Shortly afterwards our guide Shepherd came to collect us for a delicious breakfast back at the lodge. An all round amazing experience – definitely the best I have had in Zimbabwe!
