                  Liked the the natural environment all over, good food, and cleanliness in general. I will not recommend the camping tents, instead the rooms or cottages are much more comfortable. Therefore I rate the tent accommodation 3 for comfort

                  Kwalape Lodge is really nice with an ideal location close to Kasane. Their camping facilities are kept very clean and was very neatly laid out, albeit quite tight on space. One aspect that Kwalape really needs to work on is ensuring enough hot water in the camping ablutions. The current hot water system is seriously inadequate for the amount of people using it during peak times. There is also no hot water at all at the dish washing facilities. We did not have a hot shower once during our stay.

                  It was too noisy and crowded over new year period. We go camping to get away from the noise and everyone around us was playing loud music all the time and making a noise till the early hours for all three days we were there. This needs to be controlled better. The New years eve party organised by Kwalape was fun and was done by a reasonable hour. We were also disappointed that the river cruise was overbooked and we had to drive ourselves to the river which is not what we paid for and we were also not reimbursed for this - it detracted greatly from the experience. The staff, restaurant and...
