Service could have been delivered with more of a welcoming approach rather than casually chatting amongst employees as for checking out same response, would have been nice to ask how our stay was. There was no positive first response disappointing after paying $$$ and not receiving great service

My husband and I stayed here this past July and really enjoyed the entire experience. There was a problem with our first room and they upgraded us to an even nicer room. The resort itself is beautiful, the views are amazing and the staff treated us like royalty. We would definitely go back.

The hotel in itself is located on the riverbank offering breathtaking views especially in the sunset. There's quite a few activities to do in this area that they can organise for you, boat rides, game drives, but my absolute favorite part was getting a taste of the Tswana culture done by the hotels dancing staff. I love the traditional song... More

I went here as part of an Odyssey Travel group. The room we had was very small and part of another room used for children. Not an ideal place for two adults.The reserve there however makes it worth while. Nice pool and pretty view. Average food, usually a buffet.
