Come once and expect a return visit.
Facility, staff, and overall location was divine. Staff always with a smile and customer service beyond this world. Maintenance of the facilities seemed to be a priority as well. The food was always delicious. The views were better than lion king movie. Amazing

Animals at your doorstep!!
This place is AMAZING! You don’t even need to go on a safari all the animals come to you and drink from the watering hole at the hotel!!! You can spend your whole day watching them or go on a safari and see all the others all right in the park! Very cool place! Only thing would be better if it was all- inclusive as only got a bottle of water in room and no where else to get it.
