I booked this as a treat and I am so glad I did. I arrived early and spent the day in the reserve. I took two safari trips (hint: the animals were more active and visible in late afternoon). The hotel is a beautiful building,...More

We stayed just two days but felt like a week. Lots to do and also well rested. Food was excellent and chef out did himself when meeting tricky dietary requirements. Staff were friendly and passionate.

No harm in doing so especially if going during summer and other busy periods. If you're staying at PL I'm sure you'll love the whole experience and also try to go to Howletts (entry often included in package) to see Babydoll... More
