This camp is literally in the middle of nowhere, with no other camps or human habitation within miles, and accommodation is in rustic "huts", albeit with en-suite bathroom, hot water for showers and a mosquito net to keep you safe from the wildlife! We spent six fantastic nights at Kutandala, and the whole set-up is superbly run by the owners, Rod and Guz. Rod has been guiding in the Park for many years, and his experience, knowledge and enthusiasm are awesome. We have been on walking safaris many times before, but with Rod we found ourselves face to face with lion, hippo, buffalo and elephant, all very close, but always confident in Rod's ability to read the animal's behaviour (not to say that the adrenelin was not flowing on a few occasions!). The wildlife in this Park is tremendous (a herd of more than 600 buffalo seen more than once) and we had elephants visiting the camp on several nights, eating part of the roof of our room on one never-to-be-forgotten (and sleepless) night. But it is also the knowledge of the smaller things, such as insects, birds, animal tracking and the whole range of flora and fauna which, in our opinion, makes Rod one of the best guides we have ever encountered.
Must also mention his wife Guz, who achieves the impossible with regards to food, especially considering where we were. The temperatures rose to over 40 celcius during the day, dropping a little at night, yet sorbet appeared on the menu, and was wonderful, as was the chocolate cake produced at tea-time. Without listing all the wonderful meals, suffice it to say that it would be difficult to dine better in any 5 star restaurant (and as we were eating dinner out in the open we were able to see far more than just 5 stars).
This camp is probably not for the first timer to Africa (though it is very safe) but if you have been on safari before, either in a vehicle or even on foot, and want a little more remoteness, excitement and an intimate interaction with the African bush, get yourselves out to Kutandala, and I guarantee you will not be disappointed - we certainly were not.
