As your small plane arrives at this attractive lodge, you can see the wide swath the dry riverbed makes through the surrounding countryside. The exterior of the main building and the safari suites are traditional thatch and timber; inside, the neutral tones of the soft furnishings complement the view outside your windows. On your deck, during a full moon, you can watch the gray, ghostly shapes of elephants drinking from the water hole in front of the camp, or if the moon
is not yet full, marvel at the stars. When you're not watching the abundant game, there's a large, elegant dining room where you can enjoy scrumptious late-morning brunches and candlelight silver-service dinners, a lounge with a huge fireplace, and an upstairs viewing deck.
