It was a good stay. Warm welcome by reception and friendly staff in restaurant. Had a problem with the mattress and it was assessed and changed as requested

Good value -if you know what to expect.
I read previous reports and they were accurate---So we got what we expected which was comfortable and good. (it may be a bit overpriced for what you get but lets not get picky) The resort needs funds and maintenance for chalets and sprucing up of Restaurant. The staff try hard but have limited resources. Grounds and all areas clean and nicely kept. Pool area is great--Temp up to 39 while we were there

The facilities were very comfortable. Enjoyed the peace and quiet. No wifi and Eskom did turn off the electricity periodically. The camp has a backup generator which allowed electricity, but there is no cell service when the electricity is out.

Mixed feeling but still great over all
It’s really nice but definitely needs maintenance and repairs around the attractions . A simple layer of paint and a bit of filler will go along way in the public rest rooms . None of the hand driers worked and the super thin single ply toilet roll is so thin that you cannot even pull it of the roll from the dispensers without it tearing . You should try doing that while while wiping your child’s butt . The ground around the pool is completely covered in paper thorns so barefoot around the pool is a no no for sure . The campsite grounds are well swept but unfortunately on consist of sand and stones so thank goodness I wasn’t camping . Other than that the chalet was very comfortable and had everything you need and nicely laid out . I don’t know who they are but there are a bunch of people driving around in fancy cars with GP number plates and park official magnetic signs on there vehicles that actually become a bit of a nuisance around good sightings trying to tell people where they should be parking but they are actually causing more havoc than anything else as well as approach you telling you to move on because they heard on the radio that the leopard has moved on and we don’t need to sit there anymore meanwhile I just saw the leopard as well as the direction it went in so if I want to sit and wait for it again I shouldn’t be lied to but I find it very odd that non of the “Official” vehicles leave the area . It’s like they want it to themselves .

Life in the bundus
Potentially great holiday place but there is need to improve on overall service. Every evening there was water shortage. Wifi also not good so its not a good place to mix business with pleasure.

Nice Location - Bad memories
Reception Staff - Casually dressed, made no attempt to familiarise us with facility. Units poorly maintained. Grass around unit not cut for some time.

Been there, Done That, Never again...
Cheaply constructed and cramped "chalets". There is no internet, even though it is advertised...would not have stayed there had I known that. Free breakfast could use some help?
