Something not right?

Description

The Bandas have been recently renovated and now have attached flush western toilet and cold shower. Good beds (single) and nets. Metal huts but thatch roof and insulated walls (vinyl cushions?) so don't get too hot if you get one under a tree. Nice river views with plenty of animal visitors. Central kitchen a bit grim but reasonable meals at cottage restaurant (4km away) or park HQ (500m) $30+ tax p.p. Same price as camping. We were expecting them to be grotty but were so pleasantly surprised we extended our stay

Latest Check-Ins

Stayed in the bandas as part of a safari tour, prices still $30 + tax. Considering it's in the park with high government fees on everything, the bandas were much better than expected (incl nice beds and Western toilets) and great value. Hippos were walking around the bandas at night, so the property is very much in the wild without fences.

Kitchen facilities are limited, that area is mostly used by guides to cook for their group. A few nice spots created outside to sit and watch the river landscape.

Report Check-In

We didn't end up staying here but the bandas are surprisingly nice, clean with 2 single beds, nets and own bathroom. There's a communal area with a kitchen (not that nice) and big seating area etc. Apparently free wifi in here too! Sinks for dishes outside and washing machine you can use. We decided not to stay as the view from the bandas isn't as nice as the camping area and we preferred the look to camp. Same price as camping $30pp
