The rooms are amazing! Especially the honeymoon suite. The crew is nice and helps you out when necessary. The pools are nice and clean and you have a great view. Animals come pretty close. The game drives are good and well organised. A little bit more touristy, but that's in all accommodations in Sabi Sand. Guides are very nice. The... More
