Location was great and amenities were nice. We would totally stay here again. The rondavels are the way to go. Great safari trips out of the rest camp too. Lots of wildlife sightings in the river while eating dinner.

“Try and get a room with a view of the river, if unavailable there are common facilities available at the restaurant / shop area.”

“Rooms near the river are quiet and you can listen to the river flowing and its animals. The top rooms are busy because it's near shops.”
