We had a delightful time at Makutsi, saw heaps of animals, went on a couple of walking safari's which were very informative and enjoyed the facilities. All of the staff were great and we really appreciated the way the animals are left to be themselves.More

I’m not sure if there are facilities to do your own laundry but we got ours done by the maids. It came back absolutely beautiful. Folded and ironed. What a treat 😊

When you present for breakfast you need to speak to a staff member in the dining hall and order your lunch as it is extra so not difficult to organize and choice of meals is good and are very reasonable cost wise.
