My husband and I stayed here for one night over President's Day weekend. The tent-cabin we were in (#8) was decorated with leopard print accents and an amazing black mosquito net over the bed. It was definitely not needed since there were no mosquitos but added to the feeling of being on safari. I had imagined the rooms would be pretty basic but this one was really cute. There was a small flat screen TV, which we didn't use but I saw you could rent wildlife documentaries to watch in the cabin. That seemed like a great idea for a longer stay. The room was not heated and a little cool but there is a powerful space heater and an electric blanket on the bed. After checking in and settling in to our cabin an animal trainer brought around a baby baboon (Gabby) for us to meet and a South American raccoon. During the night I woke up and heard some faint animal sounds (not what woke me up) in the distance. It was great. The next morning at breakfast they brought an elephant around, which we got to feed by hand! So fun! The human breakfast was yummy: a couple bagels w/ condiments, a few pastries, bananas and yogurt. There is a coffee machine in the room as well as a mini fridge with 2 waters and 2 orange juice bottles. We weren't able to stay for the 1pm tour, which is complimentary. There are also other paid activities you can sign up for such as putting one of the elephants to bed in the evening. I would definitely go back in the future.
