The hotel is nothing special from the outside, but well situated just off the main street. The foyer is quite spacious albeit a bit cluttered with many brochures and a tour booking desk. We were met at the door with a smiling welcome and an offer of assistance to carry our bags to our room.The staff were friendly and helpful. We had a great buffet the first evening with lamb on the spit. Good food and good service. Our room overlooked the pool and the bar terrace, with a view across the garden to the riverbank. Room was very nice, although it needed a bit of maintenance. Good bed. Aircon was a boon, it was very humid. Hippos came up to feed after dark, but there were too many eager photographers wanting to get close, and basically chased them back to the water. Night drive was good - very lucky to see a leopard and hyaena apart from various antelope, bush pig and bushbabies. Also enjoyed the cruise, with many hippo, a croc, ibis, and the magnificent African fish eagle.
