"Very nice place to stay. The room was very comfortable and cool. The food was of a higher standard than I expected and was very good. The site was very pleasant and I enjoyed watching the wildlife that was present in the camp such as the monkeys and lizards. The service was very good and the staff courteous and friendly."
