We were so looking forward to this Safari, so were completely disappointed and annoyed at the quality and condition of the Hotel, the attitude of the catering staff and the complete lack of Supervision and the invisibility of the Management. In fact we can barely recognise the Hotel from the previous reviews, which to be honest appear to be more... More

He made the extra effort to find the animals we were looking for including leopard. We saw a lion and hyena standoff over a kill which was very... More
