We stayed here for 2 nights on a private tour. Unfortunately this was the most disappointing hotel on the trip.It seems like the place is undergoing some renovation and starting over, with pretty flowers planted but very little ambience established for the guests. The verandahs don't have chairs to sit on and the only place to sit by the river for a drink, was beside the noisy generator on a couple of dusty old chairs. Rooms basic and could do with a good scrub but OK. The staff are polite and friendly but very inexperienced with food and service. Perhaps they will sort themselves out over time. It's a pity it's a little far from the commercial area as we could have walked there for a break between activities. Nice folk, just not a great place to hang out.
This was great experience particularly riding through the jungle on elephants and riding down a rhino.
We were there three days and there was a well organised and varied programme of activities in the jungle and around the camp fire to keep people busy and entertained.
The Lodges were adequate and comfortable but if you don't like to have restrictions on when hot water is available and you have an aversion to lighting your room with a kerosene lamp then maybe its not for you.
Food was basic but good, the staff were excellent and night time entertainment and the bar were also good.
We have one serious issue. We were taken on a "nature walk" from the camp to see the flora and fauna and the birdlife. This took us through some very long grass and as we emerged into a clearing we tripped across a sleeping wild rhino.
The guide ushered us back quickly into the grass, he by the way was armed with no more than a stick. He quickly told us that if the rhino charged we should run for a tree and climb it or hide behind it whilst he carried out "diversionary tactics". He also said rhinos usually come in pairs so we needed to look out for the second one!!! Luckily the rhino did not wake up or charge and we got away.
We do think though this is an accident waiting to happen. It is not sensible to go walking in an area where the previous day you had been on an elephant looking for tigers and had actually found a rhino with a guide armed only with a stick!!!!
We discussed this with the manager and hopefully things have changed. If not you will still have a great time but our advice is check the details of any walk and if you are not happy have a swim in the pool instead.
