If you are into “walking with lions” and pet rhinos, this is the place for you. If you are into the natural world, you may wish to look elsewhere. Very tame. Has a pool and lounge chairs. Service staff is friendly and competent.

Beautiful surroundings. Comfortable lodges with outdoor showers underneath the stars. Did the safari drive and the mangrove tour. Staff were super. Look out for the white rhino coming to the lodge every evening. Meals not bad but not brilliant. LovelyMore

I did not enjoy the food or the coffee powder. For the price, it is abusing. The director who runs after us as soon as we leave the site with the bill when we must return to eat lunch ... very limited.More
