Askari lodge
Good friendly staff the property needs slight attention to be classified 4star. Staying at the executive rooms are not recommended as there is alot of noise during the early mornings from the workshop situated just behind.

Lovely resort
The service and staff was excellent, food and presentation very good. We had chalet 11 and although I appreciate the furnishings are in keeping with the ambience I feel garden chairs on the verandah would have been nice as these could be moved under the trees. We enjoyed a game drive with Dumisani and were very impressed with his knowledge

Exceptional 10.0
A special romantic getaway...
A special romantic getaway not far for a couple looking to escape the kids for a little bit. Our first allocated chalet was not great (more suited to the conference goer), but Askari quickly assisted us and moved us to a more private suitable room. Food was decadent and presentation first class. The ellies were a treat. Thank you
