No hot water, room service was not done as per room arrangement. Very disappointing.

Stunning place to stay. Comfortable and  beautifully  decorated rooms. Free roaming wild animals especially the Rhinos was a real treat. Dinner at the Open  Braai restaurant was excellent

We had the whole place to ourselves. We were the only guests for that night.Unfortunately the restaurant was closed and we had to order from outside which worked out quite expensive with the extra delivery charge. Otherwise it was a good place to overnight, not enough time to enjoy the game, of which there are many unusual species like black springbok, copper springbok, Llama, reindeer and numerous other species not seen elsewhere. We could stay slightly longer next time.Could have carports for shade for the car. Totally different overnight stay, book for two nights to really enjoy the game....
