Perfect! Highly recommendable! Very friendly hosts, clean rooms, etc. Hosts can organize every trip/tour for you (do the Rhino Walk and Sambezi-Boattrip!!) and all the people were so nice! Hopefully come back one day!

Many thanks for your kind review. We’re delighted you enjoyed your stay with us. Continental breakfast usually comes without eggs. They can be ordered on demand for a very small price. Thank you for alerting us about the mattress. Soft drinks are indeed available at Tabonina, as indicated in our information booklet, but good idea about the crisps or other snacks.

Dear Mandy, we don’t have shuttle per se. If available I sometimes pick guests from the airport ($10). Otherwise, we can organize one of our regular taxis to do that, same fare. Kind regards, Laurent

The above answer is correct in every detail! Ocean Basket is OK but there are far more interesting places to eat fish. The Indian Restaurant, Golden Leaf is one of the best Indian's we ever had outside of South London!
