                              Had such a great stay. Good food and the staff are so friendly and attentive. Would love some good bed linen but i would book there again.

                              Chinaka has an old safari atmosphere, not too smart, yet it is nice to have a hot shower after a long drive. I would like to stay there again some time in the future. Thanks to the friendly staff.
