Stayed here for 2 nights.
We were booked for the lazy camping but when we got there we upgraded to the Cabins (no ensuite) for $10 each extra. More space and nice little deck to sit on by the river.
We were the only ones there apart from the owners Alex and Kelly so it was very quite and relaxing. I loved just hanging out there listening to the river and watching the Corbis Monkeys in the trees across the river. Had dinner down on the beach with a bonfire.
The resturant and bar area has great views of the area and cold beer!!
Food is good and the staff friendly.
Special mention to the guide John who is passionate about the area and all wildlife. Make sure you take him with you for a game drive.
Sadly we missed out on the lions but saw heaps of Hippo, buffalo, cob, and also the heard of Bull Elephant.
The tents looked pretty comfortable and the showers and tiolets were fine although a couple of solar panels for hot water would be a good idea.
They are still building up the accomodation, adding more ensuite cabins and some more hanging day beds and also a woodfire pizza oven.
It's great value, close to the national park, and just a great place to relax.
Thanks Alex and Kelly for being great company.
