This is the best game drive we ever had since we arrived in Namibia three months ago. We saw elephants, lions, hippos and zebras, all of which we haven't seen on any of the game drives we have done before.

Their lodge is amongst the best, the waterhole in front is fantastic, and you should really stay more than 4 days. Their guides and trackers need a bit more training, but are doing great.
