We just returned from a 2 week honeymoon stay at the Maridadi wing of the Baobab hotel and we are so pleased we chose this hotel for our once-in-a-lifetime holiday! The hotel is perfect - the staff, food, facilities and atmosphere is wonderful. We were expecting that the hotel would be very nice, but our expectations were far, far exceeded!...

As many have said in their reviews, it is better to stay at the Kole Kole, rooms are superb. Service in general at the hotel is excellent and the food is delicious and varied. The bars could have a lot more variety though in their cocktails which became monotonous after a while. All in all, an excellent relaxing holiday combined...

We recently stayed at Kole Kole for 10 nights. This was our best holiday so far. We got service with a smile and everbody was so accomodating. We are Jains and were looked after so well they catered for our needs well. I would definately go back again.

The Baobab hotel is split into three - Kole Kole, Miradadi and The Baobab itself each with its own theme. We stayed in the Miradadi which is the quiter of the three with two infinity pools and a swim up bar. We upgraded to a superior room which, in addition to what you would expect, had two double foor poster...

We travelled as a couple to Baobab in September for 2 weeks, booked through Thomsons including a 3 day safari in Tsavo East and West. Lots of people have described the hotel in other reviews so I won't go into that. We stayed in the baobab section in a superior room, room was lovely and spacious. No complaints there, maid...

The Baobab resort is truly one of the most enchanting and magical places I have ever visited. The love and care and creativity from the animation team was abundantly clear.
