Outstanding safari experience. This is a small camp catering to a maximum of 12 guests, with a 2:1 ratio of staff to guests! My guide "Face" was fantastic. He understood my requirements as a photographer to get the best angles for shooting. And his eagle-eye...get this: he spotted a lion 400m away with only its 2 front paws visible in the air while the lion slept on his back!
The camp will go out of there way to accommodate your needs. For example, I wanted to do a safari on my last day, but also needed to on my way prior to normal safari end. So they sent out a vehicle to pick me up in the field, brought me back, cooked a special breakfast for me and sent me on my way with a pack lunch. And they accompanied me to the stream crossing to ensure I successfully navigated the meter plus deep water.
Yup, these guys get (or should I say give?) exceptional service. To be sure, you pay dearly for it, but it's nice to know they give you want you pay for.
