Lovely tents, very comfortable and clean, with a charming ensuite shower with proper flushing loo.
All very nicely done. Always someone on hand to walk you from your tent to the main reception, or from the restaurant to the toilets, you only have to step out into the dark, and a torch beam lights your way.
My daughters were delighted to have impala walk right past their window. Also their first experience of 'glamping', so something to tell friends.
The staff very nice, and friendly.
However I though the food mixed, on both evenings of my stay we started with extraordinarily good soup ( not usually my favourite), but both times was followed by a very tough indeterminate stewed meat. Pudding so so.
My only other gripe is the safari jeep, because it has a roof , albeit with an opening so that you can stand up while stationary, your view was more than partially blocked by the frame of the vehicle, so that we ended up with cricked necks trying to lean out of the window whilst looking up at eagles, etc.. Our guide Andrew was lovely and is a keen birder himself so I was very happy with his obvious expertise.
If you are short on time this is a good place to have a sort of mini safari experience.
