Amazing place with plenty of animals, more than what we saw in Etosha. Good food and very nice service. Wish we had booked several nights. Rooms are large and clean. Hot during night but we could sleep as there was no mosqitos.

Yes the road is open for anyone. But remember, it is a gravel road and the park rules apply. I would suggest you start your trip early morning, no later than 09h00.
