Original doubts about a bush camp with no electricity and no running water were soon dispelled on my arrival at this place. The owners and the staff were exceptional and from the time of arrival made the guests, numbers varying day-to-day from 7 to 16, feel so special. Don't be put off by the lack of electricity - there were so many paraffin lamps on at night that it seemed that the sun had not set. As to the water, well it was there in plenty and available hot and cold for showering. There is an explanation on arrival about use of the bush shower. If it's a long time since you used a pottie, you may care to practise before you get there (only joking!). At night, there is the possibility of animals visiting but this was never a problem and plenty of torch-flashing before I left the safety of my open-sided hut ensured that i was able to access the rather grand porcelain loo. Incidentally, the loos and shower cubicles have tiled floors. Food was more than adequate, fresh and fairly healthy, and the drinks were chilled. Safari excursions twice a day, 6am-10am and 4pm-8pm, were led by very knowledgeable drivers and my friends and I could not have been happier with the variety of fauna we saw nor the different conditions under which we saw them. We even managed to spot a leopard and a cheetah, and saw white and black rhinos side by side. Great bird life here too and our driver knew all of them by name. This is the most comfortable form of "roughing it" that I have ever experienced. The huts are up off the ground a metre or so. They are roomy and the beds are comfortable. The common facilities - lounge area and dining area are very welcoming too. This place is a credit to those who conceived the idea and to those who operate it and their staff. Make this safari adventure a must! Finny39
