We stayed 3 nights in the River Camp and had a great time. I really liked the smaller, more intimate feeling of this game reserve...it was nice to spend time with some of the other travelers from around the world, talk over meals, and have a swim in the river. The tents were great - very spacious, comfortable, and I... More

Hi Borntotravel...thank you for your superb rating...music to our ears! You were so lucky to see the lion cubs...they've hardly been seen since, much to everyone's frustration.
