We had a wonderful stay at Cresta Mowana Safari Resort and Spa. We were transported from the airport to the hotel by a welcoming and friendly member of staff and met at the hotel with warm/fragrant handtowels and a welcome drink - a very nice touch. Gardens and lawns are well kept and we enjoyed walking on the golf course which adjoins the Chobe River. Great to see the odd elephant and "daddy"bushpig in the hotel grounds.
Our room had a beautiful view of the garden and river, was very well appointed (guest amenities) clean and very comfortable - what more could we ask for. It was air-conditioned and also had flyscreens on sliding doors to balcony.
We had all our meals at the hotel. Breakfast,lunch and dinner was great. The selection on the buffet was fantastic and the service friendly - thank you Tshepo for the excellent service.
The activity desk was more than accommodating - thank you. Chris - our ranger - we so enjoyed our game drives and river cruises - your knowledge of Chobe National Park and the game/birds was informative - you do have a love for the bush.
We did not use the Spa but it looked clean and inviting - had we stayed longer we would have made use of it.
