Il posto sarebbe ben organizzato e carino, purtroppo, nonostante la gentilezza nell'accoglierci, abbiamo constatato una certa trascuratezza nella pulizia. Fortunatamente avevamo il bagno in camera; su quello comune alle altre camere non ho parole.

Only five minutes from the main gate to the reserve. It has a nice bar - a great place to meet other travellers. Everyone was friendly.
