great outdoor experience
overall stay was great. accommodation very comfortable. surroundings was clean and pleasing. game drives were superb; saw 4 of the big 5 which was just amazing. the spa was good although the time allocated was not given as there were few staff. the food was good as well with a lot of variety to choose from. quad biking was very exciting. wifi was very poor which is very disappointing

Gut organisiertes Safari-Resort
Gut organisiertes Resort mit vielfältigem Essensangebot. Safaris inklusive. Gutes Preis-Leistungesverhältnis. Angesichts der Größe allerdings auch größere Anzahl von Gästen, die z.T. mit Bus anreisen.

Cadre absolument magnifique et très soigné
Du confort au milieu d une immense reserve enorme. Établissement parfaitement organisé très bien décoré et évolué , repas très copieux avec beaucoup de choix avec buffets à tous les repas. Les bémols : pas de wifi dans la chambre et de toute façon wifi payant c est un peu mesquin compte tenu du prix de la nuit. De même obtenir une couverture supplémentaire pour ne pas avoir froid paraissait un vrai souci!
