The Lodging: Technically they are tents, but really it felt like a super-nice room just made with canvas walls. The bed was very comfortable and the furnishings were very nice. We had elbow room here to spread out and the deck had a nice view of the meadow. The bathroom was largely inside but there was a outside shower with on-demand hot water.
Hospitality and food: The food was very good. They offered meat and vegetarian options and always had a selection of cheese on-hand for breakfast and lunch (and as you can see by my profile name, I am a cheese hound). We had a good group staying there with us and that somehow made the dinners even nicer.
The Location: Since it's located w/in the Kihwe community area, we had the option for night drives. Alas, we didn't see too much on the night drive but the sunsets were nice. The roads are bone-jarring in this area so work on buffing up your core before you go. It's also very close to the Moremi reserve. So the two areas offered variety in our viewing: birds, predators and herbivores. They offer very long game drives. I found the 5 hours 2x per day to be a bit much, so you should feel comfortable telling them what you want.
