I was really dubious about this stay...some bad reviews ('just a zoo'), and some doubts about the accomodation quality and no particular interest in animals.
All these doubts were totally unfounded. The chalets were very comfortable and just magic when waking up with a view across the reserve. (No aircon though).
The food was great and the game drives were excellent. Sure, it's not Kruger, but you can drive for hours there and see nothing. We saw everything here....lions, rhino, elephants, giraffes etc.
I would have no problem recommending this place to friends.
