    Great accommodations, food, and staff. The view was to die for. It was a thrill to watch all the wild animals so close at the two watering holes. At a certain point we saw up to 26 elephants drinking water.More

    You really don't need to leave the hotel to see many of the local wildlife. A waterhole just off my front porch gave fantastic viewing every morning. The food is great. The place is managed by a German, who I suspect specializes in fine dining.More
