We stayed here as part of our safari. The grounds were beautiful, though the rooms were a bit far apart. The management and staff were very kind and made our comfort the highest priority.
We took the elephant cave tour and ran into a lone buffalo and saw a lot of monkeys. It was a very nice tour.
The farm has tons of activities for people staying here including cow milking, harvesting their plentiful produce, nature talks, etc; i can see it being a great place for families to stay.
The rooms were very comfortable, and a lot of thought was obviously put into decor and details.
The only (very minor) complaints I had were that the mosquito netting in our room didn't reach the ground and had gaps (I did end up with a couple of bites, but they could have happened on the hike), and the road to the farm is very uncomfortably bumpy (5k from the main road) and pretty far from the nearby parks (about 40 minutes)
