We've just returned from this paradise to a snowy SE England - the contrast couldn't be greater. Yesterday morning we were walking with our guides looking at the wealth of wildlife around us and soaking up the marvellous scenery in 32 degrees and today it's back to reality! Our guides were wonderfully knowledgeable and the drivers very skilful. We saw animals galore including lions and a black rhino! Everybody at the camp did their best to make us welcome and to look after us and our 'tents' were bliss. I went to sleep on the first night to the sounds of a hippo splashing in the nearby river. I should love to return. Thank you to all at the camp.
