Natasha’s clients enjoyed a safari in the Kruger and stayed at the Simbavati River Lodge, which comes highly recommended by our team. Unfortunately, our guests had a few disappointments at a lodge they chose, but still managed to find the positives in that particular destination.
Here is their feedback :
Greetings! I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for all your help arranging the safari for Elizabeth, Sylvia and myself last week. And also to let you know how our trip went.
First and foremost, we LOVED the Simbavati River Lodge. The setting was lovely, the facilities wonderful, the staff over-the-top helpful, and the guide & tracker the best I’ve experienced in previous trips in Botswana and Namibia. Thank you for recommending that lodge. The Seasons in Africa transfers were perfect. On time, comfortable and nice drivers.
Unfortunately we did not enjoy the Nkorho Lodge. (I think it was my choice, not yours) I would not encourage you to recommend it to clients visiting that area. The staff lacked most hospitality skills, though the chef was nice and food very good. Our ranger was lackluster and a real disappointment. Also the room Elizabeth and I shared was very small and
overlooked the back of the bar, while Sylvia’s single room was huge and overlooked the waterhole. We did have some nice game sightings, but there are a lot of other lodges and their vehicles on the tracks so we didn’t have much of a “bush” experience, or at least what I was looking forward to. (I posted a more detailed review on Trip Advisor under the name PanZora)
All that said, we had fun, because we know how to have a good time no materwhat, and appreciate all your assistance with our comings and goings.
