3/5 Okay

Happy face iconLiked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Staff ripped us off replacing our tires.
Enjoyed our stay except we suffered two punctured tires and the staff said they would help arrange us two new tires. It took them 48 hours to do so (meaning we had to extend our stay at the resort), and they charged us $60 per tire, a complete rip-off. I feel like they took the opportunity to exploit us given we would be stranded otherwise. For this reason, I feel disappointed at the service and wouldn't return.

Great venue for young and old
Enjoyed the stay although they are very much in the process of improving and building new facilities. The staff are friendly and very helpful. Service overall are good. The location great as it is just outside the main entrance into Hwange National Park.The ideal place for rest and relax after a day out in the National Park. All accommodation very clean and well cared for. The food menu are not very big, but foods prepared very tastefully.
