We arrived to the most wonderful view of elephants ambling just outside our tents. The tents are spacious and clean. Loved the luxurious decor. The service was impeccable and our guide was very knowledgable. I'm reluctant to say anything negative because everyone was so nice but we would have preferred some local cuisine because we felt sometimes western food was...

This is simply a fantastic camp. It is luxurious in its setting, the staff are just amazing and the food alone is worth travelling there for. We stayed in the Simba tent so not only had so much space we didn't know what to do with it in the bedrooms but also had a huge communal area which we had...
