Just got back from a weekend staying here - was overall fairly happy. The outdoor spa was fantastic, as were all the animals coming right up to the door. I've seen some complaints about the price, but I thought that it was pretty reasonable, given the prices similar local establishments charge, and you're supporting the conservation work. My girlfriend called the decor a bit "nanna-ey" but it's not really a problem.
The one thing that spoiled the experience a little was the fact that the chalet we stayed in was littered with Christian and worse, creationist propaganda. I get that the owners probably feel strongly about this stuff, but it doesn't need to be shoved down guests throats. It's particularly disturbing when you see reviews from people who're bringing their kids to learn about nature, when the chalets are filled with pseudoscience books and DVDs denying the basic biology of evolution. So if you're going to bring your kids along, let them learn by watching and interacting with the animals, but keep them away from the books and the DVDs.
