    “A Classy Safari Family Adventure”

    From the moment we entered the gate, we were treated with care and friendliness. Inside the lodge it’s easy to forget you are in a remote safari park in Africa. The amenities are outstanding, and the rooms like any 5-star hotel. Yet when you sit on the deck and look out at the watering hole, the visiting lions, elephants, and rhinos will remind you where you are. The food was constant and delicious. Our safari drives were outstanding! The guides were knowledgeable with not only the kinds of animals but also the locally given names of the animals we were watching. Our guides told us the personal stories of many animals. We saw a lion roaring, two brother cheetahs hunting, giraffes, elephants, white rhinos, the list is long. Not only will we be coming back, we will highly recommend this lodge for all of our visiting friends and families.

    “Mind Blowing!!!”

    I don’t know where to begin. Everything was perfect. Seriously. From our arrival to anything we asked for. They want you to have the time of your life and you will!
    Rooms were clean, comfortable and well appointed. Bath products were delightful. The food was outstanding and anything you asked for they could make. They remembered what I liked to drink and just brought it when we were sat for dinner. The views from the lodge were breathtaking and the watering hole was always filled with animals. The spa was enjoyable with a terrific facial and massage! Wish we could have stayed longer!

    “Amazing Etali”

    We stayed at Etali for 3 nights and had a super time. The lodge was very nice and had excellent food and kids activities for our 7-year-old twin girls. We had some great sightings and our ranger Jacques was very knowledgeable. Would definitely go back. All the staff are also very warm and welcoming.
