"If you are booking a chalet, try to get one that is closer to the common areas."
"Get the tents by the river front, you will hear and possible see the hippos."
"tents 3 and 4 have the best river views and AC!"
"All the chalets have air con which is wonderful if you are travelling in November!"
"If you are a bit timid ask for a tent close to the centre"
$19 - $37 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
