A zoo view
Posted Jan 8, 2016 on Hotels
This is a great hotel that borders the Bloemfontein Zoo. The main outdoor area used to look out onto the elephant enclosure, but unfortunately the last elephant the zoo had died, and they had placed some zebra in the enclosure. The first time I stayed at this hotel it was great fun to watch the elephant while chilling by the pool, unfortunatly, it's not quite the same with zebra.
We arrived during a heatwave and it was incredibly hot. We used the pool which is small but pleasant. No step for little ones though - the pool is all one depth. We went into the zoo via the hotel's entrance. The zoo is looking tired, but that's to be expected I guess. It was too hot to stay long.
Overall we had an enjoyable stay. Apparently the zoo might be moving, which would make this hotel a lot less attractive.
