The hotel is quiet and clean, the service everywhere is superb, the staff are friendly and helpful, the food is great and there;'s lots of it, and the setting is heavenly -- right on the Wasa River, surrounded by animals, with an electric fence to keep out the crocodiles resting in the river bed. Monkeys and baboons are regular visitors. All in all a great place.

We'll be back
Paradise on earth tucked away. A wonderful feel as soon as you enter the property. Staff are wxceptionally warm and well trained. Have a "Can do" attitude with great efficiency. Property is beautifully done, and unpretentious. Food, though a buffet was delicious... Hubby went back more at every meal. There are Rangers on site to take you out on hiking safaris or game drives. Would loved ro have stayed longer to explore the area more. Did miss having a running track or a gym though :). We drive down, but there is also a little airstrip next to the property. Will give that a go the next time. Adesh the ranger who took us walking was extremely knowledgeable. David who Took us on a game drive was also excellent. Bravo to all the team ! Until next time Rima and Flemming

Attractive Lodge on riverside
First visited here 30 years ago and while there is no great evidence of much in the way of refurbishments the facilities are still well enough maintained. Bathrooms might be updated by still passable. But a well designed lodge with a great location on the river bank.

We loved our stay.
We loved our stay. The location is excellent, by the river, inside the park, but well protected with electric fencing. When we checked in late @ 6-30 pm, there was only one room left, not so good one. The toiletries were missing, the electronic safe was not working (required battery change), there was drinking water provided, only one towel, and likes of that. Worst of all there was no phone in the room. So as we discovered each of the missing things, we really had to walk back to the reception to ask. But they provided everything later. So ultimately it was fine. The food was good, since the chef took special care of us offering us special dishes.

Worth the splurge
It’s a wonderful hotel in a park which makes for a special stay. Staff is super friendly and helpful. We stayed in a suite which was fine but not necessarily worth the extra amount. Food at all meals was very good and the hotel has a lovely pool. We did a game drive which we arranged through the hotel and this was very special. Wilson was our guide and he is amazing!!! He is so knowledgeable and really elevated the entire drive with his facts and experience. Make sure to bring loads of cash as the entrance fee to get in to the park cannot be paid by card. Something we were not aware of and that made the arrival rather stressful.
