We enjoyed our one night stay here in a chalet overlooking the water. It was not luxurious but was clean and adequate, with beautiful views. We had one evening meal at Crocodile Camp, which was barbecued fish, chicken, steak and salad. As we ate our food at night time, with poor lighting, it was impossible to sort out any bones or fat from the fish or meat. Consequently our group erred on the side of safety and ate very little meat or fish that contained bones. The evening meal was overpriced and not good value. Think twice about having a dessert as this did not meet anyone"s expectations and was decidedly poor.
