None of these places are cheap, but some offer better value. This is one.
Nice place, with so few cabins.
Guests were more diverse and personable than at some other locations.
The hosts were relatively new the location but already getting well integrated.
Meals: No problems, not bad, nothing special for vegetarians though they did their best to accommodate us -- otherwise I'd call it a five star location.
We would recommend the place to friends.
The preserve provided ample and fortuitous sightings. The terrain is not exciting, but we would not have noticed that if this was the only place we had visited since we saw so much great wildlife. The game on view is excellent including things like BOTH black and white rhinos, etc.
This was one of the only places we stayed at during out trip where some of our fellow guests were South African, which was cool.
