Fantastic stay with awesome chalet and service. Visited by elephants right at the fence. Super game drives with fantastic sightings!!The staff are very friendly and helpful. Chalets are roomy and clean. Linen was crispy and great to sleep under.

The place was nice and quiet. The service was also nice. The room was big and beautiful. I love the service about safari there. The only thing that I don't like was food. Breakfast and lunch and dinner almost the same foods.More

There is something about escaping to the wild that calms and restores like no other holiday could ever do. Might be related to connecting with our primitive past or going back to our ancestoural roots. I can only testify that nothing relaxes and restores our...More
