    This is an ideal holiday for children. It's not the place if you're looking for authentic game drives and real wildlife. Many animals are fed and are therefore very used to people. This is great for kids. The lodge we were in was well furnished...More

    Everything you need, especially if you are self-catering and still enjoy the availability of a restaurant and the other bells and whistles. The rooms are clean and new, the game drives are excellent, and the service in general is impeccable.
