"We were looking forward to our stay in the tented camp. But unfortunately it appeared to be our worsed stay in South Africa.... The tents have just 10 cm space inbetween. There are two kitchen areas (nicly equiped) but from 6.30 in the morning there is a lot of noise, also from a TV with childrenprograms. Just next to the tents there are some restaurants so you hear the trucks coming bring the supplies in the morning as well. Next to that they have a big ventilator that makes a lot of noise all day long (during the night a bit less, but still annoying). All in all it really wasn`t what we expected (we thought it would be more spacious and quiet), it felt like we were on a camping from Salou or something similar. If that`s what you are looking for it`s great, but if you expect a nice, green, decent place, please choose something else! "

"Don't look anywhere else, stay here, it's one of the best for the money I've ever stayed in all my 8years continuous travel around the world. Top tip, do as many safari tours as you can. On one of ours to Hluhluwe we saw around 100 elephants, 10 rhino plus all the other wonderful wildlife one would expect of South Africa, even saw a puff adder. St Lucia is a gem. Excellent alround."
