Stayed here for the first safari of my first trip to Africa. Could not have asked for a better introduction. Our guide in the park, Peter, was wonderful. Happy and informative, he made sure we saw all we could and accommodated our various requests - wait, lets go back and find those giraffes again. Clearly very experienced and able to find us the best vantage point for pictures, I can't imagine a better guide.
The staff at the Sarova were all friendly and accommodating, we had excellent service at the restaurant, bar, pool and reception/check out. The tents - clean and well equipped were nicer than many hotels.
The trip was pricey, but then, it was a once in a lifetime experience.
