                  Upon arrival African Rest was not aware of our booking. I had to show them my confirmation of booking and then they prepared a room for us. So I think the problem was with the booking agent (SafariNow) and not African Rest.

                  Loved everything, except a group of people having a party right through the Saturday night with loud music an alcohol, couldn't sleep!

                  Both management and staff were wonderfully obliging, catering to all of our slightly outrageous requests with a friendly smile and can-do attitude.Rooms and chalets were well equipped, neat and clean, and our breakfast was lovely.
