6/10 Good

Check in was perfect. I requested vegetarian options but this was not catered for, I was offered side dishes, no vegetarian proteins. Lunch dinner and breakfast buffet exactly the same as any 3 star restaurant. CHEF Sunnyboy made us a vegetarian pasta upon request. The 5 star experience can be found with their amazing staff. Check out was embarrassing, I was billed for drinks I didn't order and staff didn't handle this well. I felt as if I was lying in front of other guest.

Mini Break
Amazing property with friendly staff. We booked the all meals + 2 game drives per night package which didn't give us much time to relax, so it went like this, arrive around 1-30pm, lunch, go to room, freshen up, afternoon tea, 3-30pm game drive (3 hours) return to freshen up, dinner. Next morning tea n snacks at 6am, game drive at 6-30am, return at 10am, breakfast.
