The chalets are set in the bush, overlooking the game reserve, and feel private, yet affording wonderful views.

It's not rugged or wild, by any means, but you do see animals and the accommodations are good. Love the views. Knowledgeable and passionate guides. Good for children as well as older people. Easier to spot the animals than to get a good wifi signal, however.
