    the structure is not so firm like other lidge we have visited. the room had another view compared to those shown in the picture during the booking. I had to ask the hotel to confirm my reservation, a female ranger was unprofessional

    We found the resort extremely well maintained, with great food, beautiful rooms, and very friendly and cooperative staff. The safari guides were fantastic too, and made the twice daily trips into the bush both interesting and fun.
