Greetings From Greece and Italy!
Wonderful lodge – our family could not believe our eyes. Fantastic quiet atmosphere but the men could watch the soccer cup in the TV room! Many animals came up close to the house. Not hot enough to use the pool but we did not care much! Drives during the day proved usefull and we saw lots of animals. My mom loved the open plan kitchen, grass roof, bush all around us. Our rooms were magnificent and very typical south african. My parents always complain about beds with old and/or soft mattrasses, but not this time! pre-paid electricity is very nice and was filled up before we got to the lodge. VERY clean with new curtains, bedding and interior finishes. We had day-trips to the Kruger National Park and entered Orpen gate. Our friends prefer staying at the lodge all the time – no holiday makers to break the silence! At night we heard owls and jackals far away, also hyena [very far] but we know what they sound like. Thank you, mr and mrs Strydom, for such a wonderful lodge we can all enjoy.
Regards from Greece,
Elizabeth Costis and family with friends [Italy]
