Stayed here one night of a three day safari. The animals are so close you could almost touch them. Almost. There's an elephant watering hole outside the main dining area and leopard feeding each night. We did not see it, but waiting was fun, too. Most rooms have balconies to look out onto the park. The staff was very helpful...

It is the most pathetic place you would want to go with your family. Had to leave the hotel the moment we reached. The staff are not honest about the information they give you!!! And it is really run down. Not worth a visit!!

I stayed here15 years ago and it was great. This visit however was not so good. There was no hot water at any time during my stay, there was no shower curtain or shower gel. Charging my camera batteries was impossible as I couldn't find an electrical socket in the room. The food was not up to much either and...

The Lodge is situated in the middle of the Park. Nice view point to savanna. Rooms simple, with old furniture and rather unpleasant bathrooms. Limited time of power which important for cameras and tking the shower. Food rather good and pleasant service.

The hotel looks old and run down. It didn't get me excited at all. Wifi is very slow and only available in the lobby area between 6pm and 6am. That's when the generator is on and you need to remember to charge your phones and cameras during that time. The rooms were fairly big (compared to the other safari lodges...

The rooms are good, but old and need a little update. It was clean and there was hot water in the bathroom. The dining area and bar are fantastic and there you have a beautiful view over the park. Staff is friendly, but eager for some tips. The wifi is bad, but no one should need wifi on a safari....
