We had a great trip and stayed in a wonderful lodge. The service was excellent and the food was amazing. We enjoyed our game drives and even though the Sanctuary has been suffering dreadfully from drought, there was still plenty of game to see and watch. It was great to see so many new-born animals. This gives hope that the Sanctuary will thrive again. The views are incredible. We felt as though we were the only people there which made a change from mass of tour buses that you see in other game parks. In contrast the lake was teeming with flamingoes and other bird life. We enjoyed the breakfast at the lake - this was particularly special. Our standard room was more than adequate and we were very comfortable. The staff were great and patient in answering all our questions. We hope to stay longer next time.
