Saw the hippos! Really close to Elephant Whispers sanctuary and we were able to "meet" and ride elephants. Unique accommodations that never felt crowded. Good menu at restaurant but slow service. Pool nice and not crowded. Most people leave for game drives during the day so very relaxing if you stay on property. Short walk to restaurants and shops outside the resort but they close early. Almost no bugs because of ultrasonic devices and good wifi.

I wish we hadn't stopped over here. It was like a holiday camp. The only highlight was the elephant sanctuary visit next door which was superb. I would have skipped this stop over and gone directly to benguerra for a longer stay.
