    Nothing. Not a complaint, but it would be nice if the menu could be varied that you don't get the same menu on day one and again on day four?

    We loved the position of our tent. The entire camp is beautiful and we liked the way everybody went out of their way to make our stay an unforgettable one. Thank you Harold and staff.

    We did not like going home. It was unfortunate we had so much rain but this did not take away the pleasure we had.

    The facilities were fabulous. The staff incredible and the surroundings beautiful.... just for starters.Then you add the animals who were right there on property at any given time and it makes for a pretty amazing place. Our ranger made every game drive an exciting lesson on the wildlife. We would definitely go back.

    Location and way the tented camps/dining room are built overlooking river. That there are only 6 tents, sometimes was the only guest on a drive so individual attention fabulous. Guide was very good, the preserve beautiful. Butler staff very sweet. The hippo in the river. Weather was perfect.

    Hamilton's web site indicates the lodge has been around since 1880's (on first line) which it decidedly has not been (opened 2004). There was a Disneyesque feel to the place, contriving very hard to come across as "old colonial." Which unfortunately extended to the food. Cuisine was not at the level of excellence I would expect from a 5-star. Exact same breakfast menu every morning. Poached eggs ordered soft arriving hard. Toast served well before the breakfast comes. Meals just very lackluster, salads with iceberg lettuce, pale tomato wedges. Really? In-room material said not to drink the water but they only provide one very small bottle/per day, otherwise there is a charge if you want more. That is just wrong. My biggest disappointment was there were no walks because they had to have 2 people with rifles. Well - then hire 2 people with rifles!! Was going stir crazy after 2 days, felt like a canary in a cage after 2nd day. You should have a small gym - roll treadmills out onto the deck to give guests opp to walk. I went to Lukimbi after Hamilton's and much preferred it. They had a chef onboard and it made all the difference with the food which was just excellent. Go stay there and see what I mean and how you can improve.
