Apoka Lodge - KVNP

Apoka Lodge is so nice it deserves a photo post all of its own!

Oh, that's just a waterbuck by the cabin. NBD.

Cabin 8, my home for the weekend

View from the dining hall to the pool area

Zebras! So close!

Mama and baby


Waterbuck hanging out by the staff quarters

Oribi bounding by the cabin

Oribi - so sweet!

The reception building.

Lookout tower - we weren't able to use it due to needing repairs, but the staff stay there all night making sure no animals get into the cabins.

The cabins are spread out and accessed by stone pathways

The cabins use as many local and sustainable resources as possible

Baby elephant hanging out. I'm not sure this was actually near the lodge, though, now that I think about it.

Zebras considering soliciting the watering hole


They turned down our beds each night when we returned from dinner/game drives

The main building

Approaching the lodge

Interior view

VERY comfortable chairs!

This is one of the nicest bathrooms ever

It may not look like much, but this is one of the better-designed showers I've ever used

Outdoor bathtub - it wasn't sunny enough for an entire day to allow the water to heat enough

View from the bathtub

Our wonderful safari vehicle!
