Elena Lesca, South Africa

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.

Bert Woodward, South Africa
16 January 2012

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.

Really spacious and great facilities. Staff are helpful and friendly.
