“All In One Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

Liked: The fact that you need not seek out wildlife. The wildlife comes to you (well, to the watering hole). The waterhole is indeed what draws all animals (zebras, lions, foxes, elephants, black and wide-lip rhinos, etc) to one place. So convenient. It even gets more action at night when more animals arrive.

Disliked: You may have to stay out in the chilly night to watch nocturnal (or more wary) animals come out to drink. Grab a thermos of coffee, a thick blanket and a reliable nighttime camera.

We camped for one night and visited the waterhole in the evening. We saw 8 rhino's. It was beautiful to see these animals.

“Great Place to Camp”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

We enjoyed our camping experience here and the waterhole was an interesting place to sit and watch the animals at night. It is always thrilling for them to come to the water and drink right alongside other types of animals as well.

“An experience not to be missed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

The waterhole during the day sees a huge number of animals making their way to it to quench their thirsts in this dry parched land. Elephant, giraffe, kudu. oryx, springbok, zebra, black backed jackal and guinea fowls are the most common. At night the highlight is the visit by black rhino and lion if you are lucky.

“Rhinos galore!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

You really need to stay here in order to see all the game which arrives during the hours of darkness, but the revamped cottages are comfy if a bit cramped and with various bits and bobs not working (but this is Africa after all!) and the all-you-can-eat buffet is good value
