We stayed at this hotel in February 2012 and are returning in February 2013 AGAIN! Can't wait, the mixture of pleasant staff and beautiful surroundings go along way to make a great holiday.

The place was recommended to us by friends. It is three resorts in one, and although we were booked in Maridadi we had easy access to swim and dine in the pools and restaurants of Baobab and Kole Kole resorts. There is lots of wildlife, in the form of monkeys who will steal food from tables and get in rooms...
