we stayed three nights at this great camp. Ask for Daniel for your safari driver. he found us a cheetah hunt and lots of other animals other guides had missed. stayed in their new luxury tents which are great. very clean, though the bath takes an age to fill. power in tent overnight. i would have given 5 stars, but the chef is still learning how to cater for food allergies. most of his meals were great, but on the last night, he made a dessert of a chocolate cornflakes biscuit. unfortunately, he didn't read the ingredients labelling and missed or ignored the clear (in 5 languages) gluten allergen warning on the box. i was suspicious as to whether it would be safe to eat and asked to see the box. lucky i did or my travelling day the following day would have been ruined. i'd definitely stay here again though.
