We spent two nights here and were treated like royalty.
The camp overlooks a crocodile and hippo infested river. Quite surreal to have sun-downers watching the hippos playing.
The tents are luxurious with a comfortable bed. Especially loved the al fresco shower which is particularly wonderful after sun down as the stars are so wonderful in the bush.
Our private driver was superb. He had an excellent knowledge of the bush. We spent loads of time looking at birds and he never tired of my questioning. If he did not know the answer we looked it up together in the many books he had in the vehicle. It made for a great safari.
Our butler was very attentive. The bush dinner was an added delight. The effort that went into setting this up did not go unnoticed. Food was excellent.
The airstrip is right by the camp (literally 5 minutes away) which is very convenient. Especially when you are waiting for your return flight. We stayed in the lodge and had coffee. As the plane buzzed the camp we headed for the airstrip and arrived as the aircraft pulled up. Great timing.
