Lunch and dinner options were extremely limited (choice between two items for each course), especially for vegetarians, and the posted menu seemed pointless as it changed at a whim. Buffet breakfast was the best meal of the day. The packed lunch provided for the safaris was laughable--we were given completely inedible (grass green) bananas and the chef disregarded allergy restrictions after specific requests. The lodge played extremely loud music late into the night. We stayed in one of the safari tents, which had a very cheap and "slapdash" feel. Also, the wiring between the light switches and room lights was a bit of a Rubik's cube in terms of the right combination of switches to hit to have light. The room and reception staff were excellent, however. I would recommend avoiding this place and honestly doubt it will be open a year from now.
