Place is like an oasis. About 10min along the main sealed highway you turn off onto dirt road over the train tracks and into Wild Rivers Reserve which has wild animals including predators. Because of this, once you arrive at the property by car you cannot walk anywhere except from room to room/lodge and in daytime on the grass in front of the river which is full of crocodiles and sometimes hippos. All this can be an unreal experience knowing that lions or leopards may enter the camp site at anytime. I still felt ver safe, you just can’t get any exercise is a problem if you stay here. Still amazing to sit by the river and watch a 3-4m crocodile hang about.

Sehr exklusiv und persönlich
Sehr exklusiv, da es nur wenige Zelte gibt. Sehr persönlicher Empfang, schöne Safaris im offenen Jeep mit guten Guides. Direkt am Fluss gelegen, wir konnten vom Pool ein Krokodil beobachten. Trotzdem sehr sicher. Liegt in einem eigenen privaten und abgesicherten Reservat.

8/10 Very good

Satisfeito até o momento do check-out
O local é bem agradável e os funcionários são bastante receptivos. Mas tenha cuidado ao reservar, pois tinha sido informado que os safáris estavam inclusos e tive uma surpresa bem desagradável e cara na hora do check-out. Ao reservar a melhor suíte com a opção half meal, deveria ter deduzido que a opção half meal não excluía apenas o almoço, mas também os safáris. Sugiro ao Rukiya e ao detalharem isso melhor pra evitar estresse e frustrações. Talvez colocando HALF MEAL (NO ACTIVITIES)
