Loved our stay here so much! Cabana was amazing and the bed is one of the comfiest we have ever stayed in. Spotless. Our welcome drink was delicious. Lovely views of the lake. Staff are amazing, we had dinner here and they prepared a lovely breakfast for us at 5AM to take on our safari. They were fully booked for the second night we wanted to stay and they kept our bags, booked us a room at a different hotel and drove us there to make sure we got there ok. A perfect place to relax!
