Overall a good experience that I would recommend for a few days on either side of a safari. The good is that the staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are nice and the food is basic but very good. The problems that could help make this property better would be some fixes to the room (my shower constantly leaked, the hot water was sporadic, and two electric plugs in the room wouldn't work) The biggest issue was the wifi which is nice to have after being disconnected for a week. Unfortunately, it's pretty slow and must have kicked me off 20 times while I was there. Overall though a good hotel that I would have no problems recommending. Pool and patio are very nice.
