The staff were very friendly and the game we saw was excellent as was the ranger. The food was good but not special. The accommodation had a beautiful outlook but unfortunately the dam is dry due to the severe drought. The rooms need a good spring clean under the furniture and a little more attention to detail is needed. Overall a wonderful , relaxing time with friendly , helpful staff.
Really amazing! The game drives are wonderful, but also after having a great breakfast you just sit down in front of your tent/bungalow and enjoy the view on the lake. All the animals come to the dam to drink. It is like if you are looking at your 250 inch lcd live screen. Thanks to all the staff we had a wonderful stay!!!
