Everything in one place!
Excellent overall. Genuinely friendly and helpful staff and in sufficient numbers that you are not left waiting or can't find someone to ask a question. Accommodation was very clean and comfortable within beautiful settings. Some rooms facing the pool whilst some, the villas in particular, faced open grassland and a waterhole. Brilliant game drives and at reasonable times, especially if you have children. Great location and setting and easy to drive to from airport - roughly 2 hours. My only small disappointment was that the food seemed to cool down more quickly than i would have liked. Not sure if it needs to be hotter to start with maybe?

Had a wonderful 2 night stay. We were in the main hotel area, on the ground floor of one of the two floor buildings. Beautiful grounds, the staff were all friendly, check-in was simple (we booked through Expedia) and the breakfast and dinner buffet had an excellent assortment of food to choose from. Did on safari ride. Others have written about the bad condition of the roads within the park. That is true, though it did provide an authentic "off-road" feel - literally. Our safari guide Clement was superb. I very much recommend a stay here.
