Stayed for 3 nights at this lovely spot. The accommodation is very nice with great views. Only downside is the separate tent for the bathroom. It was too hot, despite the overhead fan, to enjoy the beautiful bath with spectacular views. Also going to the bathroom during the night meant navigating the many insect population enroute .
However, on saying that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We had Colbert as our guide and Derek our tracker. They are an incredibly team and completely made our stay.
Food was very nice, especially the evening spent at the Boma (outdoor BBQ).
We saw the big 5 during our stay.
The 360 bar is a great place to socialise with other guests to swap "sighting" stories. The small pool is also an added benefit.
Would recommend for sociable couples looking to see the big 5 in good accommodation.
