We had a one night stop over on the way to Sabi and was really impressed with Acra - The very friendly staff was accommodating and provided excellent service. Wish we had more time to partake in some of the wide range of activities offered. The lodge has a really welcoming homely feel with comfortable surprisingly spacious rooms. Dinner options in the town was limited but we made the best of it and had a very nice meal at the lodge. Will be booking a longer stay in the near future.
