What an amazing place! You are treated like royalty!! The owners, the staff, all top notch! The game drive is exceptional, the animals we saw were amazing! The highlight for me was being able to touch and bottle feed the baby rhino!!! The room we had was tastefully decorated, it was surreal lying in bed, listening to the lions roar, it felt like they were outside the bedroom! We awoke to the sounds of baboons barking, we watched them playing in the trees from our patio! What more could you ask for! We saw the white lion lying about 5 metres away from the car! I wish i could've stayed longer!!! Thanks to Rocco and Yvonne for the experience of a lifetime, it was unforgettable and we will be back!!!!
