10/10 Exceptional

We had a hard time finding the lodge. Apparently it is a new place and even the other lodges didn't know about it. When we did the booking the map showed the lodge in Karatu. The address in the confirmation was in Karatu. Google maps showed the lodge in Karatu, (where the Flamingo lodge was). Even the name is Karatu tented lodge. But the lodge was somewhere else. Further down the road. Didn't have a sign outside! I hope the location problem is solved in the Expedia system. The above was Expedia problem. When we arrived they greeted us with such joy we forgot all the problems we had. Great people. We had a very nice dinner and very nice breakfast with a nice view. The premises is very nice. The tent needs a bit improvement. It was a cold night and inside the tent was a bit cold too. I do recommend the place. If we go back we will definitely stay again.
