                  The place was very nice, always someone ready to help. The place overall is very beautiful, peaceful and very nice for someone that needs some rest. They keep everything tidy and cleaned up all the time. The pools are always clean and in good condition. The homes are very nice with everything you need aircon, clean bed, clean towels, a fridge for something to be kept cold. Theres everything you need in the kitchen to help yourself if you are not in the mood to go out and just stay in your nice cool room. For those who want to get out there is a restaurant where you can get food and drinks from...

                  Upon arrival African Rest was not aware of our booking. I had to show them my confirmation of booking and then they prepared a room for us. So I think the problem was with the booking agent (SafariNow) and not African Rest.
