The property is beautiful and rustic. The "tents" are raised off the ground, have a solid wood floor and high thatched roof, with large balcony and 2 chairs. View of lake is a bit obscured by overgrown trees and bushes.
Water in taps and showers comes from the lake, so don't drink or brush your teeth with it. Bottled water is provided in the bathrooms for this purpose.
Main building is a large open-air meeting place, with bar, comfy seating areas and dining tables. There are power bars at the far end of the bar where you can charge up your camera batteries (just make sure you label your batteries with your name).
There are lanterns in the main building that provide light, but it's still very dark and difficult to see. Due to the openness, the lights attract lots of insects that may end up buzzing around your head or sharing the dinner table with you. Beware if you are squeamish about bugs! We also had many little geckos (small lizards) living within the thatched roof of our tent, but we didn't see any inside. There are thousands of birds here as well to enjoy close up. Although if you're a light sleeper, ear plugs may be needed as the birds tend to sing loudly throughout the night.
Guards will escort you back to your tented bungalo after dinner, and you are not permitted to walk after dark without an escort. So once back in your tent, you're basically there until morning. Lighting inside your tent is powered by solar panels and is dim, so a flashlight or camping headlight is needed if you like to read in the evening. Even during the day, you are not permitted to wander around the area unescorted due to wildlife. You will see tracks from zebra, wildebeest, antelope etc. everywhere.
Food: Served buffet style, with several choices available, but it does get repetitive. Taste was a bit bland, probably because they're trying to cater to many people who may not appreciate stronger spices. We found desserts here to be of poor quality and taste. We were in a tour group of 15, and on the 2nd night here 6 people became violently ill. 5 more became ill within the following 24 hours. Avoid raw "salad" veggies and anything that has not been peeled. Fresh fruit such as mangoes and pineapple should be ok. Otherwise, only choose hot cooked food!
The property is mostly used for tour groups, so if you're travelling alone you may feel outnumbered. It was a fun and unique experience, but getting sick here definitely put a damper on our holiday.
