Once in a lifetime experience. This Island is absolutely massive and beautiful. The animals aren't there with you. YOU are there with the animals. Also, our Safari guide Tillano is one of the most passionate and educational guides I have ever met in my life. Kudos to him. Made our stay there very memorable

A beautiful resort with friendly staff and excellent service. The room is spacious for a family, great breakfast and very nice pool and beach area. Thereu2019s a tennis court, kids club and a spa. The hotel offers various activities including wildlife drive, horse riding, cycling, and water sports. A few peacocks on the ground adds to the charm of this resort. Will definitely come back.

Unique experience. I tried the Moroccan wrap. I thought I would have to stand and be wrapped in Saran wrap, but it was way more relaxing. I was on a heated mattress, once the mask was applied to my whole body, I had a heated blanket. I could've stayed in there forever. My therapist was Pat, she was soft spoken, patient and very sweet tempered. She gave me a head massage, a face massage while we waited for the mask to do it's work. I would definitely go again.
