5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

I loved the animals and the nature setting. What I didn't care for was the busing for this resort. It was always longer than the 20 minutes and there were several times when the bus schedule was not visible in the app.

Love the safari! Love the activities for the kids! Checked in at 1pm and Was told I would get text message when room was ready as check in is 3pm. 4pm arrived with no texts, went to front desk and there was an issue with the computer releasing our room from previous guests. We got assigned the room at that time but I wonder how long we would have waited for the text if we didn’t speak up!
