On the river with all the animals coming to drink. Johan secured room 10 for us with a balcony and a view on the river. Two hippo's fought on the banks of the river which was a first for us and the elephants passed with their babies. The surprise is your singing chef o-la-la he is very entertaining and proud of the food he produces, very tasty. Value for money overnight stay!

Lovely, interesting and cosy place. So clean and staff so friendly😊. The views from the deck were stunning. Food was good, portions so big, you definitely not leaving hungry. We did feel a bit guilty leaving early morning to not wake up other guests...Will stay there again.
