The lodge and rooms were great. Service was great. However, what you don't know is that there are two types of rooms. One with a jacuzzi outside and one with a whirlpool. The jacuzzi is heated, the whirlpool is not. The rooms are great, spacious and a great view of the river.
The guide was good but definitely not exceptional. I have been on a lot of professional level safari's where the guide knows exactly what to do when. If you see some Rhino's let the guests get a few photographs before trying to get too close and scaring them away.
