The lodge is the most upmarket of the lodges run by Machaba Safaris and has spacious safari tents with wide decks that look out over the Kiri River Spillway. The tented suites have indoor and outdoor showers and excellent beds — so comfortable. There are two family tents which have an extra en suite room separated from the main suite by a lounge area. A swimming pool and spa are also available.
