This was the end of a wonderful safari in Botswana and we wanted to relax by the beach. For that it was great. I ditto what Maz076 says for the falseness of the manager and the pushiness for the trips. They also ran out of certain food and one morning we had an awful breakfast experience....... the manager asked how was our breakfast My return was lovely except you have run out of bacon! before i managed to say it is not important now... he had run into the kitchen shouting at the poor chef. He then brought hinm out into the resaurant, made him apologise to us then promptly slapped him!! We were astonished and made a complaint to our agent! We only ate in the restaurant the first night and then found a wonderful taxi driver who took us to different restaurants. He was a Godsend. He worked int he day at the airport and when we had a problem as our flight back to JoBurg was highly delayed and we had a connection to make, he helped us and that was above the call of duty!! A final blow was our camera. I had it the first day and admittedly did not put it in the safe, then we did not see it again!! I asked if it had been handed in and was informed that their staff would never steal - that was not my question!! so they had obviously had the problem before. Good job i had transferred all pics to a USB!! So in summary - wonderful place, 'workers' are brilliant but management (especially THE manager) awful.
