          The accommodation was clean and the kitchen well kitted out and we enjoyed the swimming pool area (low season). However, the self-catering bungalow we received was dark and looked onto a small water feature with lots of other bungalows looking down over us. The outside area was therefore also not very inviting. I think when you book, you need to be made aware of this. The photographs are all generic (with views into the open and the waterhole) and therefore misleading. Cottages that do not have a view should cost less.

          We booked a long weekend at Bakubung and paid for four nights up front. Bakubung telephoned to cancel the reservation due to the COVID restrictions. I requested a refund and was directed back to Safarinow. I have also requested a refund from Safarinow. I have had no communication r a refund from either Bakubung or Safarinow. This reservation was cancelled by the establishment - not by me. Currently I would rate both Bakubung and Safarinow extremely badly
