We went to the Restaurant for our staff year end/ Christmas function and the food was terrible, not what was explained on the menu, tiny portions and lacking flavor. This was such a pity because it’s a beautiful venue with friendly staff! Pity for the food to ruin the experience!

I've just been quoted for a five day stay in January 2018 - is this per room. Also what other activities besides game drives etc.
Looking forward to meeting you. Is it possible for you to contact me directly on the e-mail address . I would be able to personally advise you on all the possibilities for your stay. As to the quote our prices are normally per person dinner, bed and breakfast but we do adjust according to guests requirements so if you could let me know what the quote was I will look into it for you. Regards Jean Toucher

Have reviewers been bothered by mosquitoes in the hotel grounds or on the trips out? I am not sure if I should start a course of anti-malarial tablets before my visit in March. Thanks.
I was advised to take tablets as the area was considered to be on the fringe of affected zones. Take a tablet before you go, to see if you have any adverse reaction; it was very reassuring. During 21 - 29 September, I never saw or felt a mosquito, but I had taken repellent. Best to go fully prepared and protected.

"All rooms are good"
"All the rooms are well located. I've stayed in a room with a mountain view and it was excellent."
"Ask for a room with a view to the courtyard pool area"
"If you can afford it, take one of the new suites...you will not regret it! Such a luxurious space!"
"Perhaps ask for one of the new rooms in the newly built section. However, absolutely nothing wrong with the other rooms!"
US$122 - US$188 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
