We were actually there in June of 2010. We did a 4 day safari. Being from the states our expectations were not really very accurate, we really did know what to expect. In the 4 days we had some of the best food we had on the entire trip. The refreshments waiting for you in the evening was a nice touch. We say all the animals you would expect, we almost saw a lion kill. We were so close to a lioness we could have touched here, literally. Our ranger Christian, was amazingly knowledgeable. The accommodations were very nice. I would not hesitate to recommend Waterbuck to anyone, in fact I have recommended them to several friends that are planning trips to SA.
