BDK: thanks so very much for your reply; it certainly seems like Leadwood is a choice spot. Do you think it will remain the same when CCAfrica takes over as management? Will those same managers remain? I know the game won't change - but having the best rangers, etc. makes for the best experience. From what you have written it seems Leadwood would be the choice!
Another option I was given was Leopard Hills...any thoughts on that particular lodge? Thank you again for helping me and all the other posts you have written in the forum. Its been such a great help in planning our "trip of a lifetime!"
