Absolutely lovely !! The 1 bedroom unit was very stylish and well equipped, the kitchen had everything possible to make my life as mom as comfortable as possible - even including a dishwasher !! The Central air-conditioning made our stay a pleasant one during the cold Winter Nights, and we were able to organise an additional mattress for our 2 year old to sleep next to our lovely King Size bed -it felt like a second honeymoon.
The patio overlooking the game reserve a few meters away gave us the opportunity to view the game without having to go on a game drive(which could be a nightmare with a toddler)
Made use of the spa and at first I considered it a bit pricey, however after having a facial, mani and pedi where they pampered me for over 4 hours -I considered it value for money.
There was lots to do for my toddler, bush put-put, trampoline and a well maintained playground.
Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful.
We had breakfast at the restaurant.Good food however it was expensive, we decided to order room service from then on and we had absolutely fantastic food in the comfort of our unit at a very reasonable price ( I decided to make as few meals myself and rather enjoy the luxury).
Just keep in mind that there is no shop on the premises that can provide the basics (bread,eggs,milk,salt,coffee, tea,sugar) you need to drive out of the reserve (not far but still) to find these- the curios shop only provide the basic snacks like chocolates, chips and ice-cream, so I would recommend that you stock up before going to ensure you have everything you need.
Absolutely ideal for a family get away, next time we will rent a larger unit and take the Grandparents with.
