Clean and friendly staff. The unfortunate part is that there were hidden costs. Upon arrival we were told that we qualify for a game drive because we booked for 3 (three nights) and we went for that drive the next day. On departure we were surprised to see the cost of a game drive for two which is (R450.00 ea), R900.00 in total included in the invoice. We never questioned anyone and just paid.
