The rooms were OK, the children's room much better than ours. The huts were clean and well constructed but it was very cold at night and dark in the rooms so there was nowhere to sit together and just 'hang out'. Had we been booked in for just one night it would have been a good experience but once we had done the 1 hour 'staged tour' and watched the dance show there really was nothing to do at all. We were expecting an interactive experience where we would be able to do things and communicate with the people there (e.g. making jewellry, spears etc). The experience was very passive and the walk about the village tour very 'set up'. Sitting in a hut watching a video about Shaka was wierd and it just felt very staged and unreal. We were very disappointed because Claire had really encouraged us to do 2 nights there and we expected something much better from what she had told us about it in advance. On the other hand the setting was amazingly beautiful and we loved watching the sunset.

A poor man's Zulu Disneyland. The accommodation was not ready when we arrived. It did not have electricity or water when we arrived and was nothing like the photo in the brochure. After two hours we did get what we wanted but would not recommend to anyone. If there is such a thing as the opposite of a highlight, this was it. ( The pits ? )

Would not recommend - was tired looking and staff were clearly bored. Food terrible.
