The rooms were clean, comfortable and good value for money. Game drives were superb and the management went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Great bar overlooking the plains. Highly recommended.

In comparison to other drives, the Jesse from the ASGL was outstanding as he really knows the area, is always connected to other guides and shares his wisdom of the animal world. Lodging was great as well.
