My husband and I visited in April. We saw an amazing array of animals, and I can't say enough about the hospitality. Tor and Elisa (the camp managers) were very gracious, and our guides were both amusing and interesting. All the camp staff put out effort to make certain that we had a fabulous time. In addition to the game drives, we especially enjoyed the bush lunch and sundowners. The quality of the food was outstanding, and we were truly amazed by the camp staff's ability to set up a luxurious meal in the midst of the bush. We very much enjoyed the intimate and noncommercial feel of the camp. Anyone who goes in April should be forewarned that it is pretty wet. However, we very much enjoyed the trip and the upside of Spring is that there are few visitors, so the experience with the animals is more intimate.
