What a beautiful setting - accessible only by boat it's on an island but only a few mins boatride to land. You have the best of both worlds there as you get to do land & water excursions. We saw wild dogs hunting impalas, a leopard and her cubs with a kill, a hyena chasing a leopard too mention just a few unique experiences.The grounds are nicely done - cool little bar, fireplace with plenty of seating, a lounge and a library with seating tastely built around a termite hill to not disturb the environment. The staff are v friendly and helpful. Food was great. The rooms are nicely furnished and the shower has a great view of the surrounding area. My one & only complaint is the critters in the room - we had a huge spider, our neighbours had a scorpion and my friends had a rat!!! I know you are right in the middle of nature but we would have felt more comfortable if the staff had reacted better and tried to get rid of them rather than just laughing. It's really hard to get a few hours sleep with a rat on your inside window frame!!

HighlightsSurrounded as it is by water and lying close to large channels, aquatic creatures are easily found, but general wildlife viewing is consistently good all year round, with lion, leopard, elephant, sable and buffalo along with extensive plains game.
