We were on our honeymoon and stayed at 5 different camps. This was not the most luxurious camp, but it was very nice and was our overall favorite. There are several reasons for this - the food is good with large variety. The rooms are nice and big, and our tent was on the river so we had nice views (saw a croc and a hippo from there). The camp is right next to prime safari areas, in fact we saw 4 of the big 5 (just missed the rhino) and also saw numerous other animals (like cheetah, zebra, wildebeast, wart hogs, too many to name). This was definitely our favorite safari, Duncan was our guide and he was really amazing. I would recommend this place to anyone, it had the perfect balance of coziness, friendly staff, and amazing safari. Oh, and the staff if helpful and there is a lot of guards around, so it was easy to get back and forth between rooms.
