The staff were very friendly and welcoming and spoke good English and the tents were top-class. The buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner was also very good. They... More

Although apprehensive at first staying in a 'tent', it turned out to be a wonderful experience and my fears were alleviated. Even there is no lockable door to the tent, the grounds are patrolled day and night and there is a safe in the room. The room itself has a modern bathroom with all of the amenities you need and...

The club tent was lovely; very spacious and private, with a nice big deck. The only drawback was the DREADFUL shower head - I strongly suggest the hotel contacts Sarova Lion Hill... More
