Reception and Camp Staff at Marakele

Unread postby Hippotragus » Mon Feb 25, 2013 2:36 pm

We stayed at Motswere Guest House 1-4 February 2013.

Before booking, I corresponded via e-mail with Miriam at Reception - checking if bookings were open etc. She was fantastic and I made the booking through her. On our arrival, she gave me a big hug and, when we got to the Guest House I got a missed call from her and a message asking if we were settling in OK (poor cell reception).

We do not normally have TV in the bush, but because it was there, my husband wanted to watch some sport. No luck! Then Solly arrived from Tlopi Camp. He came and went and came back several times (including after hours) until he got it working. I think Sipho also became involved somewhere along the line!

Samora was at Reception when we left and, as usual, was helpful and friendly.

Thank you Miriam, Solly and Samora. You all do SANParks and your park, Marakele, proud.
