We stayed here for over a week during Christmas, 2 of us in a big rig. Dan and Trish, the owners for the last year, were perfect hosts and made our stay amazing.

This is one of the few lodges on the lake that is truly big rig friendly (we are 3.7m high), we had to cancel reservations at other lodges for access reasons (and our rig is relatively small).

Our pitch had electricity, drinking water, and a braii, as well as a great view of the beach. The lodge has a pool, bar, and good restaurant.

Dan and Trish made out stay, first by helping us get replacement propane saving us 1 days driving(they took our gas bottle on a supply run and refilled it, AND lent us one in the mean time), second by cooking great vegan options for us for dinner and Christmas lunch, and thirdly all the little things like getting cigarettes for us, saying hi every day, and staying on top of everything.

This was the longest we stayed anywhere in Africa and we found it hard to leave. Ablutions are fine, water hot, and generators to deal with power cuts. Nobody bothered us at all during our stay and other campers were good company. Lake is nice, sometimes hippos swimming in the morning but they don't come near the shore.

10 USD pppn for camping, worth it!
