I don't think there are enough words to describe how much my family and I enjoyed our experience at Gomo Gomo. From the moment we arrived -- to 10 elephants cooling down in the dam adjacent to the lodge -- we knew we were in for a treat.
The lodge itself is rustic and comfortable, with a prime spot alongside the water. The rangers immediately make you feel at home and are experts at what they do. The food, particularly the boma dinner, is delicious, intimate and contributes to the general feeling of welcome that is present at Gomo Gomo.
Since my return to New York, I've gone though withdrawals and often try to get updates from the lodge's Facebook page on which animals they've spotted recently. This is a lovely place that doesn't break the bank but still manages to give you a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
