Perfect weekend away! Very peaceful lodge overlooking nature from your room. Great service and food served at the restaurants. Lots of activities to be booked by the club house. And the spa was incredible. Would definitely recommend to any couples looking for a getaway to relax and view animals from your doorstep.
