There are two things to consider when you book with Osman
This is a homestay so if your expectations are basic rooms, local style food and a friendly, fun family who enjoy interacting with their guests then you will have a great time. It's a genuine homestay experience and that for me beats a hotel anytime. Of course if you are older or used to your home comforts and modern amenities then you might be better off booking into a higher class of accommodation.
2. Boat trips
Osman is an excellent guide. He is knowledgeable, he has great eyes for spotting and he has a very vibrant sense of humour! You'll see some great animals and be entertained as well. He's also pretty flexible when it comes to timings of trips and focusing on particular animals you want to see. His speciality is finding those elephants (although of course nothing is guaranteed).
We stayed with Osman for 3 days 2 nights and had an amazing time.
