Stayed here as one stop of an organised tour of SA, Botswana and Zambia, so had no control over choice of accommodation. In hind sight the tour company could not chosen better on our behalf! We stayed in a cabin with a stunning view over the Chobe River. Very clean room with modern facilities and like nowhere ive ever stayed before! The staff were very friendly and provided help and advice as we asked during the stay. Breakfasts were very good, wide selection and some items on request e.g. omelettes as you like them. Evening meals were alittle samey each evening but were of a high standard and very nice for the length of time we stayed for. The staff seemed genuinely pleased to see us each day and were super friendly. The grounds were very nice and had a pool, but really it is the location that sets this place apart, right by the river the views from our room and the bar were just out of this world. Due to bugs you cant drink in the bar on an evening (after dark) as its open and you get swarmed!!! You only try this once trust me! Then you quickly learn that after dark, you have dinner and head back to your room for an early start the next day! I really liked this place and would recommend to others. The game drive and boat safari were fantastic and the staff were great and knowledgable, i got some great photos on each trip!!
