The place is obviously a vast improvement on how it was a few years ago when all the reviews on this site trashed it. Still under renovation it provides a perfectly hospitable getaway in an amazing location. The staff are especially lovely without exception.
Things to look out for: (1) it's a 37 kilometre dirt track from the main junction but it is entirely passible in a regular saloon car (2) you're not allowed to hike or walk outside of the grounds, which is a severe restriction if you didn't bring a vehicle; you can't even walk down to the lake, it is forbidden and the staff will prevent you by claiming you will be killed by buffalo.
The pool is exactly as blue as you will see in the pictures and is extremely clean. Once they have upgraded all the rooms I expect it will become rather expensive so you should probably go now
Apparently they will bring 8 lions to the park in August 2014
