  • Beautiful place with views to kill for, well trained friendly staff, refreshing atmosphere and a must visit for anyone who enjoys nature and animals. The river tents are something to experience if you like camping and the outdoors. Also note at night you can hear the roar of lions which are kept a few kilometres from the main camp.
  • The standard' rooms are a disgrace to the place. The last time that we stayed in such a room, we paid one dollar a night and not $40. The standard room in Antelope Park was not only just two small beds in a tiny room, but linen was full of little 'crawlers' (upon our comment on that, we were told to just shake our linen), curtains a shame and the rest dirty. When we had reserved, we had been told that our room would be 'prepared'. I wonder what that must have meant. They could at least have checked if the linen was not too covered with insects. There is no bathroom. We knew we would use the ablution block with the campers which would be all right if that were not quite dirty as well and shared with a full campsite. Of the 3 toilets, one was not working. Worst of all was the location of these rooms, the view (none while the surroundings are large enough to have had a different concept), and the fact that it was just a concrete block with 'cells' (=monk rooms) . No wonder there was no one else in a standard room apart from a guide (maybe the rooms were designed for that purpose, but they should still be clean and not overcharged) . Camp site was full at $10 per person and by far a better choice : night in clean tent, close to the river. Upon reservation enquiry and even check in, they kept on trying to make us book a tent at the river for $85, also telling that the ablution block was too far (100 metres, while in fact it was maybe 30) and would be too full with all the campers. The truth is that their ablution block is absolutely insufficient for a campsite and about 10 rooms (or more?). I am very glad that we did not book a more expensive room because if our rooms were so bad and run down (and the ablutions), why would I expect more of another room in the same place. You know what 'clean' is, or you do not and they clearly do not.
