Well worth making use of their specials. Full board and two(2) game drives daily. They've managed to rebuild all the tents after last year's devastating fire. The main building is still under construction. Considering that they don't have much to work with, the team was always friendly and very helpful. Meals are buffet style. Limited choices, however you will not...

Great spot to experience true nature...The diverse vegetation, scenery, mountains and plains give you such variation in your game drives. The Tents give you that feeling of closeness in the bush. A wonderful place for my children to experience their first bush lodge trip!

I enjoyed my experience here. I do like more luxury/amenities, but quickly got used to it. The little huts we stayed in were cool, and had heavy canvas siding. We could sit outside on a little verandah which was fun. Nowhere to really hang clothes and few shelves. However the beds were REALLY comfortable and heated which was a treat....

This was a remote bush camp. We went to see the animals, it is remote and many items in the room were broken, ( like flaps/windows) , not outlets to charge electrical devices and our safe did not work, The staff were VERY nice, but accommodations need upkeep.
