  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Gorgeous property and exceptional service at every level. Many little added touches to really enhance the experience. Great value for the money. Food is high quality and well-prepared with local choices available. The facilities are 5 star, the safari experiences personalized and excellent. You cannot go wrong choosing this safari! There is no wi-fi in the tents, only at the main lodge, that was my only negative feedback.

    Un Lodge à l’ancienne où chacun est à sa place. La qualité de service est là mais il manque l’accueil chaleureux qu’on peut trouver dans certains Lodge.
