    Right on the main road in Kasane

    Great swimming pool and nice restaurant. Lots of bird and gardens. The staff was friendly and helpful. They hooked me up with the tours. It was great except I did get lots of mosquito bites. Next time I’ll use more repellent. You can Easily take a shared taxi for 5 pula.

    Nice area

    Very nice location, with big beautiful gardens with lots of lakes and birds. The bar and the pool area are very nice and we spent a great time swimming and chilling out. Restaurant offers a big menu and everything we tried was tasty and reasonable priced. We slept in a fornitured tent that was spacious but too hot, even with a fan on. The shared toilets and showers were always a bit dirty and they were definitely too old. We had a bit of trouble at the check-in. They put us in a tent that was already occupied. Also they told us that the accommodation was not paid yet but it was (by Apart from that everything was nice and the staff was polite.

    Quiet place for few days

    Nice place few kilometers (5-6 km) to Nata. You need to take a taxi to go there. Shady, quiet. We stayed in a safari tent. The bedding is not very confortable and no plug inside.

    We stayed in one of the safari tents and it was much more comfortable than we expected. The staff went above and beyond to help accommodate us. They found us a free tent at 6am when we arrived, helped us arrange bus tickets and were knowledgeable about any questions we had. The pool was cold but that’s what happens in winter. There were many places to relax around. It was a wonderful experience.

  • 6.0.Good


    Overall, the stay was fine. The rooms were small and in need of some repairs and the furniture was broken. Needs new flooring in the room. The bathroom was nice though the only window that opened was very small and did not have a screen. The pool area was nice. The restaurant took 1.5 hours to get our food.
