And I don't mean football! We were there during dry season so the game were in search of water. There were a significant amount of animals underneath our room at watering at almost all times. The staff was very excited to have Americans staying with them. The services was very good. I highly recommend staying in the reserve. Once in... More

Salt Lick Lodge is a great place to stay. Fantastic food, elephants are coming very close to the Lodge although sometimes I had the feeling it was like a zoo (the waterhole is just 2 meters away from the lobby). Game drives: I did not see many animals (and not so close) but the ranger said it was because of... More

Great to have the elephants come so close to the watering hole, and we saw lots of elephants during game drive. Our great guide Evanson managed to find us some lions,... More
