We were fresh off the 36 hour trip from Toronto when Sonia and James welcomed us into their abode. Couldn't have been any better for our first ever trip to Africa. It was like 4 days amongst friends except we didnt have to do any cooking! Loved the small size, the comfort, the food, the scenery and especially the animals. Only suggestion: please restrict smokers to a secluded area... perhaps outside the electric fence? (This is a problem in all of South Africa). We miss you all and cant wait to return.
