Great place to relax
Great place very quiet. To get the most would need to like hiking I think. We were happy to lazy around and just watch the bird life. Good food and service. The afternoon drive was also well worth it.

Amazing place
What an amazing place. Quite remote so very peaceful. Don’t expect good internet as it’s there but slow. I went on the rhino safari and the guides were excellent very knowledgeable and we saw all of them and you’re allowed to get right up close to them. The road there is quite challenging as it’s a sand road with some flooded rivers to cross if it’s the rainy season so beware. Would definitely recommend for hiking.

Way too expensive for what you get. The meals were adequate but nothing special. No fans or AC in the room. Dinner was scheduled from 7:00-9:00 pm. Got there at 7:00 but didn’t get our first course until 7:30. Only two waitstaff for 20+ people. Internet rarely worked. No idea who at lodge was in charge. I would not recommend to family or friends.

A tip on choosing your tours
Make sure you know whether you want to do the Plateau tour (which they don't offer or even tell you about and has to be booked directly with NWR - and has lots of great wildlife) or whether you want to tour around their conservancy (where, introduced, habituated White Rhino sightings are almost guaranteed). If you're there for two days, you can obviously do both.
