    Staff more than helpful and accommodating. Breakfast and dinners superb. Massage excellent. Grounds well maintained. Attention to security and overall safety was priority. Suggested a safari company that turned out to exceed my expectations.

    The staff are friendly and welcoming from the minute you arrive. The location is great, it is close to Nungwi village but quiet and relaxing at the same time. The facilities are fantastic and everything you need. The food is delicious. Would highly recommend.
