Breakfast was great with a lovely hot and cold buffet. We enjoyed having a buffet dinner one night and a set menu the previous evening. Welcome drinks were good. All the waiting staff were very attentive

A variety available even to suit us vegetarians. Dinner was a la Carte menu and we had a vegetarian option. The veggie curry was very good.

We were given kerosine/paraffin instead of vinegar. Managers response "the waiter was in a hurry, but don't worry it's a new year"

We visited here twice and was never disappointed. The staff are so very welcoming and the SPA is excellent. For value and experience I couldn't not recommend more. Out on the game drive we spotted all top 5 which was areal treat.

Great food, friendly staff and overall a nice experience with the elephants as well. Visited on a very hot day, so lots of flies- mabe a citronella candle on each table could help. This was our second visit and we enjoyed it just as much as the first one.

The service in the restaurant was not up to standard. Impatient service, orders were served wrong. We ordered 3 sparkling waters, and after sending the order back 2 times we decided to leave the restaurant. Better training would be an option to consider.
