Im giving this 4 stars because at night, there is a floodlit tree that is bated for the visit of the leopards which are joined by hyena , elephants and even a porcupine - the animal visitations were wonderful - the "hotel" was not so hot .
To begin with, there is no power until 6pm each evening and it goes off at midnight and only one plug socket in our room (19) so charging cameras, using any electrical gadgets or just using the much needed fan in the room , was impossible except by relay . By the time we wanted to shower , all the hot water was gone - not acceptable although we do understand the difficulties of relying on solar power .
The swimming pool was round the back of the car park, with no sun beds, no towels , just one bench so not a chill out zone really .
Food was better than at the previous nights Voi Lodge but again, beds were hard , not enough pillows , the ones which were there were old and smelly .
I know people would like you to complain at the time but on a whistle stop tour , there is no time to make a complaint - it needs some TLC but for the leopards and the hyena , I have to give it a half decent review .
