Expect to pay ALOT more
Posted Dec 6, 2012
First off, the overall experience at the hotel was quite amazing, so if you don't care about all the extra fees than you'll love it. However, if you do care, prepare yourself. Right away there's a 70 dollar conservancy fee per person per night you have to pay. I don't hold this against them given that you pay it to the park and not the hotel, but warning would have been nice.
Next, they charged us 80 dollars to bring us from the airstrip to the hotel, which is about a 4 minute ride. This was what outraged me the most. For the price you pay and how short the ride is this should ABSOLUTELY be free. Then, when we got there, it turned out the 'game drives' were another 80 dollars per person per drive, and while at least you're actually getting something for this 80, the description does not clearly specify that this is not included.
So overall, it was a great experience, I just wish they were less crafty in letting me know what I paid for before I showed up.
