Only stayed here one night as part of a week long safari, so a bit in and out.
I would describe out first floor room at a tree house, all made up of natural logs etc. and very rustic.
A pretty small property, and remote from anywhere after the drive in. We sat down to a small buffet lunch, small but quite appealing. Same for dinner and breakfast. It was all cooked, as far as I could see, by one young guy who was both enthusiastic and happy if you lied what he had put out.
There'd be lucky to be more than 30-40 people staying per time so its an intimate affair.
In the evening towards the end of dinner there was a local "cabaret" show put on. Singing, dancing, and a quite spectacular, death defying (or at least sever injury defying) actrobatics act laid on. All pretty good.
However, back in the room, showerswere a one or three stream variety, of varying stength and not always hot. And in a weird partitioned part of the main room. Not appealing.
Rooms themselves were, at best, eclectic.
However all was saved by the small and dedicated delightful staff who really try to make your short time there pleasent. Bravo to them because some tourists are staggeringly rude, and embarrassing. But through it all they were unfailingly pro-actively nice and welcoming.
