Richard's camp was full of unexpected surprises. The accommodations were amazing and felt so surreal to be in the middle of rural Africa with all the sights and sounds but still able to enjoy sleeping in a king size bed and having cocktails on a sofa in an open air living room! It felt so luxurious having coffee, chai and cookies delivered to our tent with our wake up call. And we can't say enough about our amazing guide, William. He found every animal we ask for and then some! His ability to spot them from what seemed like miles away was amazing. Every day was an adventure driving through rivers and bushes to explore the wilderness. We did not expect to have the amount of timing provided to go on safari drives and we took full advantage from the moment we were picked up at the airport until we were dropped by off ... literally, every second we could spend on safari we did! Alisa and Thor were so thoughtful and always asking if we needed anything and making sure we spent our (very short) time there doing what we wanted. Richard was the perfect host and took time to talk to us even though he was busy actively tagging elephants during our stay! The camp was bustling with "saving the elephant project" people during our visit but it was fascinating to see what we only get to watch in documentaries happening right before our very eyes! We loved the stories they shared and will remember this experience forever. We wish we had more time there to actually spend some time hanging out and exploring the camp itself. Maybe next time :)!!!! Thanks for the great memories!!!
