I have stayed in Safari Park several times on business trips in the past year. The hotels is a bit out of town, but close to the office so a good choice from that respect. The hotel grounds are secure and the landscaping is wonderful. Every car going in and out has to pass a gate with guards, making the hotel grounds very safe. The gardens with many plants and big trees are beautiful and also the African Dance show in the Nyama Choma restaurant is highly recommend.
On the down side, the distances between the rooms, reception and restaurants can be quite a long way. The mobile internet (which is recently gone from paid to free) does not have a good signal in all the rooms and can be very slow. Housekeeping is slipping, I stayed for 4 days, and one of the days, I found my room back at 22:00 in the same state I had left it at 7:30 in the morning. No cleaning, bed not made up and no clean towels. On an other night, my mini-bar had not been refilled. One of my colleagues had a big discussion on check in about his taxi (which had been arranged by the hotel). They insisted on a cash payment and would not charge it to the hotel bill. I have also had an experience with no taxi being there to meet me at the airport as agreed. Not major issues but for a hotel of this standing, this is not what you expect.
