The reserve itself was amazing. Great guides, beautiful land, animals in their wildlife, and nice staff. The main lodge was nice. Good food and of course a bar. The last night staff cooked outside and performed native and traditional son / dance. It was a surprise and truly made the stay memorable.
The sleeping lodges were the only downside. Poorly lit paths, to poorly lit rooms, brown water and small bathrooms. Perhaps just too close to nature for me. The views from the side mountain lodges were breathtaking and you could see every single star. Not knowing what was lurking at you was a bit unsettling, but hey, that's a safari, right!?!?!
I would recommend this place, just know it's not 5star.
