CNN reports that the award was given to this lodge largely thanks to its variety of activities on offer. Activities for the entire family that is.
Featuring everything from game drives for the entire family, bush walks tagging the kids along, being close to the bush is the number one priority here. The luxury lodge also boasts a library on site, a family-friendly sunset deck and an outdoor swimming pool overlooking the largest body of water in the 63 000 ha, Big 5 game reserve.
