A comfortable mix of seclusion and intimacy with private tented rooms that open onto a lush lawn and the sprawling river opposite the National Park. Each tent, although basic, has its own patio, en suite bathroom, twin beds and roll-up sides and front.
Decorated with eclectic and original African artefacts, the living area is a large thatched lapa that opens out onto the lawn and river. A sun deck hovers above the water on stilts offering a panoramic view of the river. Picnic-bench tables in the buffet restaurant are made from slabs of teak and the lounge and bar area have comfortable cane chairs.
What you see is what you get and par the incredible view and setting, there's some left to be desired. If you're all about the location and the wildlife offerings nearby, then we suppose one could overlook the finer details for ease to visit the Popa Falls or the Mahango and Buffalo Game Parks.
10 tents, 2 self-catering family bungalows, 1 double bungalow and 1 River Suite on a floating deck; all en-suite with showers and river views; mosquito nets; standing fans; thatched living area with bar and restaurant overlooking the river; deck; curio shop; swimming pool; nearby airstrip; 3 individual campsites (only one faces the river) with shared ablutions.
There's also the full board guided Ndhovu Houseboat for up to a family of 4 people sharing. This must be booked for a minimum of 2 nights.
Boat trips; fishing; birding; game drives in the Mahango and Buffalo Game Parks & a village walk.
Venture off on a guided day trip to Popa Falls including lunch packs or you can also self-drive to view the nearby rapids, another highlight of the area. A great place for a picnic. Spend the day on a game drive in the Buffalo Game Park and combine this with a sundowner boat cruise - the ultimate.
Over 400 species of bird have been recorded in the Mahango Game Park, a few kilometres from the lodge, and in addition to the big game you might see such rarities as roan antelope, red lechwe and nyala.
