Nice Chalets, bit old but clean, needs a revamp. Nice for a weekend with no TV and no Radio , just relax. The roads are in bad shape, but that was due to the rain. Lots of dust on the roads that is driveable. Swimming pool was very dirty. No game drives, also due to the bad roads.

The roads were generally fine but there were places where I had to turn around unless I was prepared to scrape over stones with... More

The chalet was neat and tidy, but it needs a total revamp. I found that the kitchen, the furniture and bathrooms old and tatty. We went on a 4x4 route throughout the resort and their animal hideaway huts were falling to pieces......it's the small things that either make or break your holiday, I do think their rates are reasonable and...

I read the description of this lodge with interest. I went there with my young family about 10 years ago. The accommodation was fantastic, although my kids had to sleep on the couches as the alternative is a "loft" room at the top of a steep flight of stairs. There was no game in those days, not even a bird.... More

The venue has very nice facilities. However, their camping sites are very small and you get irritated by neighbouring guest if they are noisy.
