From arrival to departure it was 5 star all the way from the excellent accommodation, superb food and wonderful game drives. The waterhole in the front of the main building was a sheer joy watching the zebras and buck who also wondered through the camp.

It depends on your time frame - ideally 3 nights is better for you to settle in and relax, but if two nights is the only time you have in a busy travel itinerary then it will do just fine.
