                              Dit was 'n absolute grillerige ervaring. Die kamer, badkamer en beddegoed was vuil. In die een kamer kon mens duidelik sien iemand bly daar, want daar was persoonlike items in die kaste. Die beddegoed was vuil en die toilet het nie gewerk nie. Nodeloos om te se, ons het glad nie geslaap nie en net gewag vir die grens om oop te maak sodat ons daar kon wegkom. Ek kan nie glo dat Safari hulle met hierdie plek vereenselwig nie.

                              Cooking and washing up facilities are not as one would expect for the price paid, equipment was re-purposed from a caravan. Some equipment in the unit was not working. Beds were clean and tidy.

                              Everything could be improved - nothing as advertised on the website was true.

                              The Camp site was a bit small. The toilet close to the camp site was in very bad shape. There were toilets close to the bar area that we could use that they are busy remodelling. There were no doors on the 4 showers which meant we had no privacy. The staff was friendly but I really think they can brush up on the overall cleanliness and security.

                              Friendly staff but the accommodation was not up to standard. The showers did not have a doors and it meant the water went everywhere. The Fridge in the unit smelled like fish and was leaking all over the floor. There were no bath mats and not all the cutlery was provided for in the self catering unit. The bedding was not up to standard. They do not have a tumble dryer on the premises (Laundry service) and I think it is a must as the towels does not dry overnight in the humid area.
