No one was expecting us seeing that our shower wasn't even cleaned before arrival. The fridge weren't stock with all the drinks they said were available. We booked because of the discount and it's not even worth a stay with...

I should say that we didn't do any of the game things at Nyaru, we stayed as part of a wedding party for a nearby wedding. However we had two nights in the Nightjar and they were both very comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. One thing I would say though, the site is accessed up a dirt...

We stayed at the Nyaru Game Lodge for two nights. As there were 5 in our party we reserved two of the chalets which lie to the rear of the main lodge and in very well-tended gardens. The lodge lies up a dirt path and some points could be an issue for a saloon car to transit. The surrounding scenery...

We were shown to our room, which is a true african style thatch roof, the thatch smell can be mistaken for mustyness or mould, but I love the smell of thatch. My wife was cultured shock at first as it...

My dad, fiance, and myself recently went to Nyaru for their ATV game drive. We were greeted by a very friendly staff and setup on our ATVs. We had an absolutely fantastic time and I would highly recommend this experience, especially for the ATV experience. I have done a number of game drives in the area, including normal drives and...

This place has so much potential, unfortunately I was a bit underwhelmed by it. Introduced to our accommodation and it was not what I expected from the pictures I saw. Perhaps my own fault for not inquiring into exactly what the Rangers House consisted of but I wasn't expecting a pretty basic room which felt like something you'd find in...
