Great rooms, great food, amazing views from the breakfast deck, lovely hanging out in the hide, the children loved the swimming pool with the water slide, playing table football and the...

I found the staff extremely professional and willing to reply to your greetings and engage in a short conversion, yet prepared to remain distant if the situation required it. They are very helpful and always available, yet not overbearing, from the ground staff to the management. Game drives and game walks were very exciting and informative and the effort taken...

We spent three nights in this gorgeous location and the bush experience was wonderful but we were very dismayed at the service levels we experienced throughout our stay. Our visit in March was obviously not 'peak' time and the resort was quiet and perhaps this induced a general 'malaise' regarding service. Examples of lack of service were walking into the...

We arrived before check-in and headed to the restaurant to look at the view. There were zebra and warthogs within 100 feet of the balcony. It was a great way to start our visit. Staff was really friendly and helpful, though a bit uncoordinated with the wildlife office. The restaurant staff did seem a bit disorganized, especially when we went...
