We stayed two nights here prior to our stay at Salt Lick Lodge. From speaking to other people who have done the Hilton Safari, we expected to be given a suite on our first night. We had a lovely junior suite with two bathrooms. We were given a welcome amenity of two bottles of water and a fruit basket, plus a welcome note from the general manager. There is a minibar in the room, as well as a safe. We were on the 15th floor and were allowed to use the executive lounge on the 16th floor. Everyone at the hotel warned us not to walk outside at night and to be careful during the day. Even so, we were happy to have a comfy room to get over our jet lag before we went to Salt Lick Lodge. Every staff member we met in the hotel was warm, friendly, and helpful. There is a business center in the hotel with four computers, where you can check your email. They charge on a per minute basis, and it works out to around $14/hour. It's not a high-speed connection, but it's more than adequate. By the way, you need a three-pronged plug here, the type they use in England. We also brought an adaptor to translate the current from 220 to 110 for our laptop and battery charger (see the bad photo below).
