                  The place itself is really nice, situated next to the mountains it does have the atmosphere of desolation. At the same time: it is extremely hard to get to and, honestly, I don't recommend doing it with the compact car. It could be done - as we did it - but even driving extremely carefully we had some scratches on the car that rental company won't like. It basically is about 4km of gravel road which is not that bad and then another 4km on which basically every 200m you scratch the surface with the chassis.Also: they close the gate at 8 p.m., an information that we didn't find on safarinow,...

                  It is a very nice place the idea what they have for the guest is very good. But there must definetily and urgently check on the gas installations. We have have experience in one tent where we stay that we smell gas when my husband check on that the pipe was broken and I have a photo to proof. The manager did repair it immediately but I think is was very dangerous. In the lapa the gas stove was also leaking at the regulator or hose. They also repair it. They was there to repair but the maintenance must be better. To gas there is no change to survive when you not smell it immediately....

                  We were a large group of 10 people and everyone has a fantastic experience for our 4 night stay.The staff were friendly and efficient, the facilities were great.The only concern was that the bush could be cleared a bit on the road in the 'game drive' section, for vehicles to pass without too many scratches.

                  It was really amazing but they didn't warn me about the hunting when I booked there, I didn't like that at all... it was so peaceful until you hear the gunshots...
