I visited for a one night stay during my trip to Cape Town. This place has now put me off ever going to a safari again, I was so bored but stuck in the middle of no where so couldn't go home till my transfer the next morning : ( The safari lasted 3 hours, we saw about 5 different species but only a rhino the first night from the big 5 and we was so far away it was really pointless going for such high cost. To put into context I'm from England and went to Africa adventure world in Lowestoft where we got so much closer to giraffe, we was able to feed them from the jeep with our hands, hence I expected this to be way more wild then it was. I hated but so much I didn't want to go on the morning trip. There's not many animals and the ones which are here all seem to be rescued.
The wifi barley worked so I was sat in my guest room which has no tv and no wifi. Literally had to force myself to sleep in the hope tomorrow would come sooner. The assistant manger tried to out me on their private network so I asked for my iPad to also be, then he said it only works for 1 device, little did he know I work in IT so accessed the router to find the password and shared with my iPad. Liar!
They also overcharged us so check your bill, they did refund some money in the morning.
We was so happy till we came here, what a waste of money. I cannot wait to get back to my normal hotel!
Some good points, food was OK the steak was nice. Staff waiters friendly and helpful
I'm in joburg next week and have already asked work if I cam change my safari to quad bikes as I'm worried it could be a similar experience. Lesson learnt at least, PLEASE filter for bad reviews on trip advisor first
