i had a fantastic 2 night stay in this hotel with game drives and dinner at the sister establishment Sarova salt lick- it was wonderful. The executive suite did not disappoint, the food was fresh varied and excellent quality, the guides very conversant with the routes and animal movements. i however felt the security is a bit lax.
