We camped at Senyati for 3 nights. Wonderful to have private ablutions and washup area. Camping sites are unfortunately relatively close to each other. The view towards the waterhole is also obscured by the chalets. But still a lovely place to spend time at. The deck overlooking the waterhole is open day and night. And the waterhole is lit up. I took my coffee early mornings and watched the bush wake up. Bar open at certain times. No restaurant.
The main lodge access is just suitable for 4x4's. Parts very sandy and one way traffic. We recommend the alternative road - especially when you have a trailor. Phone or email the lodge for instructions.
Really a perfect base for Kasane, Chobe and Vic falls. Staff were helpful and friendly and gave us good advise on traveling into Zimbabwe.
Abundant bird life as well as owls at night. We saw a great variety of game passing through the lodge.
I can definitely recommend this establishment!
