Well what can I not say about our stay ...... nothing!! We were made to feel like family from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. Whatever you have read in other reviews about Kuname, it's all so very true. We saw 'the big 5' within the first four drives we were on (thanks to Peter and Sandy). I didn't think getting up at 5.00 am every day would be so exciting and thrilling, not knowing what animals or birds we were going to see, but it was so worth it. We were very lucky to see the pride of lions on nearly every drive we went on, and I mean up close, not a few hundred yards away. As for the cheetah 'brothers', it was a thrill to see them so close, both 'chilling out', with a kill and then sleeping it off. We were also very lucky to see, not one, but two leopards.
As for the food and the staff back at the Lodge, we were looked after so well, it was home cooked food that was above fabulous, we must have put on so much weight, but that's what holidays are for. Our room was decorated by the staff, as we were on honeymoon and it was much appreciated by us both. We cannot recommend Kuname enough and look forward to going back there. Jan & Allan West
