Stayed here for 2 nights as part of a safari tour package. It was much nicer than what we expected.
Some rooms are bigger than others and have different bed configurations. We were given room #2, which had a king sized bed. Very spacious room and huge bathroom with shower. Room #1 is also very spacious and airy with a high ceiling. Other couples in our group received rooms with 2 smaller beds. The rooms with higher numbers are located further away from the main building, and are smaller and darker. Beds have mosquito netting which you should use. Shampoo and soap are provided, but no conditioner so if you need hair conditioner bring some from home. In the evening, lighting is very dim so if you like to read in bed, a small camping headlight comes in handy.
The windows in the bathroom area are screened but are left open (probably for ventilation). This allows very small insects to get in, such as small ants. Just remember, you are in Africa, not the Park Plaza in NYC. Some noise from birds, crickets, rooster, and children singing in the church next door (if you can really call this "noise"). Walls between rooms are thin and not insulated for sound, so you can hear your neighbours talking, and likewise they can hear you.
Rooms, public common areas and grounds are kept very clean. Main building is a large open building with comfortable seating areas, a bar, and television. There are no TV's in the rooms. The dining area is at the back of the main building, open air style and very spacious and lovely. Meals are usually buffet style, with enough selection to suit everybody. Breakfasts include variety of breads, fresh fruits, bacon, eggs, coffee/tea, juices, cereals, and made to order omelettes.
There is a small gift shop on site. You can also purchase postage stamps and mail your postcards right on the site. There are a couple of computers in the main lobby if you wish to purchase time on the internet. Connection speed is slow.
There is a large room behind the main check-in desk where you can keep your luggage or other items if you are travelling on a safari tour and will be returning to the lodge at a later time. No cost to store your items.
Pool is large and clean, although we really didn't have any time to swim due to our tour schedule. There are vervet monkeys that live in the trees and sometimes play around the pool area.
The entire lodge is surrounded by a high wall and a gate with 24-hour security guard. Beyond the gate is a shocking contrast of luxury and poverty. Not really safe to venture out on your own by foot. Lodge staff can arrange for a taxi or other transportation if you need it.
Nicest rooms are #1 and #2. Although they also have rooms with more beds (which means less floor sp...
