I visited Governors' Camp in September nearly 20 years after my first visit - I won't leave it so long before I visit again. The breathtaking landscape alone is worth the trip but that's just the backdrop to an extraordinary parade of wildlife. The highlight of the game drives had to be three sets of lion cubs. The Camp itself is beautifully laid out by a river with very comfortable tents and nice touches like a hot water bottle in the evening. The food was delicious - light and beautifully prepared dinners and lavish breakfasts - and the staff were friendly and efficient. I look forward to my return.
