                                  We was not happy to stay in a room like this. The room was big enough for two single bed with this small passage to climb into your bed. The table was not a table that i will put into a place like that, no headboard and the other one was steel and there was something missing on the top. Nothing to hang your clothes on. The water in the shower was cold. Not ever my maid will stay in a small room like this. The price for the room was worth R300.00 per day and definitly not R700.00. I think that SafariNow must go and look at rooms before they rent the rooms out. Go and have a look at this...
