Feel like being spoiled for the rest of your life? Don't look any further, because you've just found the place and you know: we've been there!
Don't forget to close your mouth once in a while when you walk around gasping at the mix of 7star luxury mixed with nature at it's best. Sometimes you have to even pitch yourself that it's all true.
Professional staff make it all possible and builders have been making a architect and designers wish come true at a place where normally only trees grow.
Food is great and 'no' at special requests is hardly impossible. The winelist is 4 armlengths long and the Sommelier (French for professional alcoholic addicted on wine) one of the better onces we've met in the world.
All staff have humor, if you present yourself as a non plastic loud mouthed American. You don't want the pesonal attachment and a professsional butler distance, more fitting with your US 'I'm important' attitude? Also no problem.
Be sure that all of them go the extra mile to give you a 'once in a lifetime' experience that you probably want again and again after that.......
This goes from guide, tracker to all the service people.
No points of critisism this time then?
Eeeeuh after deep thinking: the huts show the high traffic throughout the season and need some remodelling, plus repairs. Further it's good to also go to the Tswalu Resort in the Kalahari and then try to draw a comparisson. We still have an ungoing discussion, but might come to the conclusion that Tswalu feels less 'slick & smooth'.
But as said, we still have the discussion and 6 stars are appropriately in place!
And oh yeah: please do visit the School of Cooking in the neighbouring staff village and maybe contribute....
