The restaurant was being renovated, but we could still order hot dogs, burgers, pizzas and sandwiches. The bar was well stocked. We went on a crocodile tour, this was the hi-light of my stay. It...

We had visited this place six years earlier and we were impressed with the improvements and additions, particularly with the variety of animals available. The highlight for me was watching the giraffes, one of my favourite animals. The accommodation was clean and comfortable. It was good that they had made wifi available since our last visit, albeit only in the... More

I used my points for booking this holiday. Prior to the holiday I was told that although this was a six sleeper, this meant four (4) adults and 2 children under the age of 12. This got me quite agitated because in the first place I do not have a child under 12, and I was not prepared to go... More
