              The dinner is a little overpriced as it wasn’t cooked to perfection. The duck breast was very dry and vegetables very salty.

              great location in a concessionary area of the Addo national park. We could view wildlife from our room and from the breakfast area.
              Food could have been better - breakfast was a big spread but dinner was dissapointing. We could not eat the main course as the chicken was overcooked.
