Verified reviewgood

We stayed at Mispel. Accommodation was clean and well equipped for self catering. There were a few minor items missing like an egg lifter and a cork screw. Mispel is advertised as a 6 sleeper but is only really suitable as a 4 sleeper for 2 couples. It has 2 en suite bedrooms - a 3rd bed in one room and 1 bed in the lounge/kitchen area. Maintenance can also be improved - loose toilet seat - toilet does not flush properly - some lights do not work. Scenery in the reserve is fantastic. Many birds - number and variety of game a bit disappointing - many beautiful dams - but no water birds - why?? Overall a worthwhile experience.
