We (a family of five adults) were delighted with our stay here. The location is stunning. The camp is pleasant - comfortable without frills. The food was adequate. The footpaths need attention - especially for cabins last in line. The facilities for battery charging are inadequate. The big plusses here were the staff, notably our guide (Paul) and tracker (James) who worked wonders as a team. Our encounters with a wide variety of wildlife, large and tiny, were memorable. We selected Lagoon with high hopes of getting close to dogs and witnessing action. We were not disappointed. But we were treated to many other special moments, each one a bonus. Our fellow guests throughout our stay were mostly delightful, knowledgeable companions. What more can one hope for?
In summary, we had many hours with dogs including an amazing experience when for thirty minutes dogs, hyenas and lions fought, lunging and jumping back and forward, barking, howling and roaring. Our guides had not previously witnessed a scrimmage like this. We watched a lazy leopard on and off over several days. We were delighted to come across honey badgers and mongoose.
We saw a range of herbivores from the roan antelope to elephants and hippos up close, and much beside. We became surrounded by a herd of around fifteen hundred buffalo creating so much dust that it was difficult to breath. And we were excited, maybe even surprised by number of bird species, ostrich included. Great value, but a couple of things around the camp could be brushed up to good effect.
