We were greeted and looked after throughout our stay. Jonty was our guide who knew his stuff! He went out of his way to ensure we saw all the animals we wanted to (if available to see) and seemed to be the one that other guides asked if they had questions.
Always professional and polite, he gave us perfect viewing and photo opportunities throughout our stay.
Our accommodation was clean and luxurious- the bed was huge! Being October, the pool was a little too cold to venture in to, but it was lovely to be able to sit and enjoy the sun in the day and the stars at night in out own private deck.
The main lodge had the view over the watering hole (albeit sightly blocked due to over-grown trees) with the hippos which was a great sight to see when you first arrive.
There were areas where the lodge was looking a little tired; the main deck was uneven and bulging in areas- and our shower in Olive was leaking into the ceiling.
A lovely stay and highly recommend to anyone wanting the smaller parks with lots of animals to see.
