Just spent a wonderful three days at this camp. Wonderful staff lead by the manager, Nelson. Excellent guided drives; we saw a wide variety of animals including lions, cheetahs and leopards. Very comfortable spacious tents with quirky bucket showers. Great bar and dining area amongst the trees overlooking the river. We would love to return again to this camp.

My third visit to this beautiful camp right in the middle of wilderness and every visit , I can see improvements in facility and service. The latest are the two electrical charging sockets provided inside the tent which is extremely useful. Earlier, one had to charge all the gadgets in the lounge which is eased out now. Housekeeper Francis was... More
