Expert Travel Advice for Southern Africa

testimonials

We just arrived home last night from the honeymoon, we had a wonderful time, we truly didn't want to come home! The hotel, the food, the water sports, the service, just perfect.
Rachel & Gavin - United Kingdom

The stops you recommended, and the places you booked, were wonderful.
Dan Siegel

We have already recommended the lodge (and yourselves) to a number of friends and will continue to do so in the future - we are also hoping to be able to visit Zwahili again soon ... ummm ... perhaps without the kids for a more "romantic getaway"
