The Lodge is nice but...

Hamburg, Germany

My friend and I stayed at the Gomo Gomo Game Lodge for 4 nights. The Lodge itself is very nice but there are a few major 'no nos' attatched! Housing: the Lodge offers a few Houses on the grounds which are all very nice. The Bathroom is spaciouse with a shower an a tub for two. The bedroom is quiet large with a wandrobe and a small table. The mosquito nets should be replaced as they are useless with a lot of holes in them. The terrace offers nice views and compfy chairs. You should not be picky, there are a lot of bugs in the room and you can even get snakes in them or other critters during the rain as they tend to come in through holes close to the pipes. Also, take your flashlight in the dark! They don't take you to your rooms after dark, so you have to walk around the grounds on your own and keep in mind you are in the bush and there are animals around! Lodge itself: quiet nice, lot of areas to sit and walk or enjoy the little Pool. But beware, the restroom facilities are very dirty. Even after putting this matter to attention they weren't cleaned within the next two days. That was pretty disgusting! The area around the waterhole is really nice, you can sit and enjoy the animals stopping by. Beware, Snakes may fell off the tree to where you sit. The pool area is small but nice, too and also overlooks the waterhole. A lot of animals stop by during the day and you got a pair of Egyptian Goose live here. Dining and Drinks: Breakfast is cereals for grabs and they offer a large variety of warm choices by order. Lunch is served as a set plate and Dinner is served with an Entree, a main course at the buffet and a dessert. The food is nice, not outstanding but okay and what you would expect for the bush and price range. The also have special options for vegetarians and even vegans. Water, tea and coffee is for free all day. Everything else you get at the bar by ordering. The prices are reasonable, like 1$ for a Coke or 2$ for a Gin. They offer a wide range, too. General staff: the housekeeping and the kitchen staff are doing a great job. They are nice and friendly and fun at the meals which are either taken in the main house at one large table or for dinner in the Booma. Guides: here it gets tricky... they are all 20 something guys from around South Africa. Most of them got real knowledge but some got a real attitude. Some Tourist enjoy the Show off, sleezy, over funny Guy way. They flirt with some girls and most times when they try to explain things about the animals they exaggerate, like repeat keywords like huge and large three times. They also try to make it a huge suprise which animals you are going to see next cauz on the radio they talke a mix of englisch and Shangan so you wont know what is up next. That can cause you to drive like 20min just to see nothing cauz they didn't got the permit to enter the region in the end. So it would be better to explain to people what is going on. Also the Guides like to sit in the dark by the door at night without any lights on and listen in on conversations of the guests. They also like to gossip in Afrikaans behind the guests back which is not nice (they think you wont understand even if you do)! Game Drives: Game Drives are twice a day. The area is awesome and no matter what kind of guide you get you will see all the important and big animals. I have to give the guides that, you can make requests to see special things like spider nets or birds and they will stop for them along the way, too. That was a nice thing to do. The cars are not in that great shape, some doors wont close properly and there is sometimes a broken tire but nothing the Tracker can't fix on the way. Keep in mind you are in the bush, so a lot of things are improvised. So all in all, if you fancy the funny side and don't mind showoffs you will enjoy this for sure.

Terrible food

Just left this resort Staff and safari drives were AMAZING!!! Everyone so friendly and helpful and drivers and trackers really knew their stuff......,however food was TERRIBLE! As a vegetarian it was particularly bad but in general not good at all! No snack bar or options of any sort in between meals! Bizarre menu choices and dry, bland food. Lodge and rooms could do with an update! Very grubby In general and bathrooms in particular, both private room and communal areas unclean! This resort has soooo much potential but disappointing.
