I stayed here for 2 nights while backpacking around East Africa. I stayed in the dorm (which is huge) so I got a room all to myself. There was only one other person staying there. The staff gave me my key but didn't give me any more information than that. I eventually found the bathrooms and the one computer they have for guests to use the internet. They have a lakeside 'restaurant' which closes at 6 PM. Thankfully the other girl told me the closing time at 5:45 PM, so I was able to rush down and order some food. Their menu is quite limited - mostly you can order chips and then some sort of meat side. For vegetarians there isn't really anything you can eat besides chips. Breakfast in the morning though was really good. On one hand I really liked my stay there - it was quiet, clean, peaceful and the animals were interesting to wander through. On the other hand, amenities are very limited. I guess it was nice to know that my $10 dollars a night was going towards the animal rescue work and not frills for guests.
