Great game drives
Our wonderful ranger David made our trip! He ensured that we saw lots of wonderful animals and was full of enthusiam — we could not have been happier! The main lodge and rooms are of a high standard and beautifully decorated, but the management and staff are in need of training. Everything is very slow.....s

Upmarket game lodhe
Best part of our stay were the game drives. Enough animals to see in a controlled environment. Food to a good standard with breakfasts being the standout. Staff were not up to what I expect from a 5 star property but did improve towards the end of the stay after a few words to the manager.

5/5 Excellent

Excellent accommodation, Superb Game Drive
Luxury accommodation with great service and food. Game drives amazing with helpful and knowledgeable ranger. Just be aware that it can be cold on the early morning game dive but hot water bottles and poncho provided. On the game drives we saw Lions, elephants, Rhinos, Hippos, Buffalos and a Cheetah. Only negatives inconsistent Wi-Fi in room, minor repairs issues to external walkway and handrail in room.

Nice Game resort with highly professional staff -
Nice game resort with highly professional staff. Lodge was nice and spacious but the different levels from the bathroom to the bedroom to the sitting area makes it challenging and hazardous if one has mobility problems (I nearly broke my neck stepping from the bathroom into the bedroom at night in the dark with the level change.) Also, a secured fireplace would have been a nice touch. Sheets were stained but bed very comfortable. Nice food and excellent all around personnel. A better view of the river or the forest would have added a special touch in our lodge. The safari itself was unbelievable with hot pouches waiting for us and wonderful ponchos. Very well organised program.
