I absolutely loved this place!
The location is awesome, our ranger stephan was incredibly knowledgeable. Our food options were kinda restrictive considering we are vegetarians, but was really good.
The room... well the room was out of this world !! A door which opens to a sun deck with a plunge pool and pool chairs.. all facing the forest with no fences !!
Little things like next day weather forecasts and small cards highlighting a new flora/fauna specious indigenous to the park, really add to the experience.
The entire thrill of walking down a wooden bridge to the room which opens with a huge key and being escorted by a guide because elephants had ventured into the premises a few days ago kinda seems out of a story book.
Looking at elephants, rhino's and lions while eating your meals has no parallel.
Looking forward to coming back!
