      Front of house staff were highly accommodating, knowledgeable of the local area and polite. The owner Kian, recommended an amazing fishing trip with Maverick to us and came back on our return to see what we’d caught - a really friendly, personal place. Easy to book other tours at reception. WiFi could be better - we couldn’t get this in our room and as international tourists, sometimes needed this to check maps, weather etc. Overall fab place.

      All Suites are spacious and comfortable. They are located in several buildings in the park where the gardens provide a very nice environment. Soundproofing of the rooms seems minimal, but it was not a major issue during our stay. Breakfast is typically South African, so don't expect any decent coffee. Reception staff was friendly and helpful, providing guidance for activities and visits in the area.
