luxurious accommodation in beautiful setting, perfect place, outdoor shower under the stars, complimentary brown sherry in the room, balcony with a view and a lovely hot bath run for us on our last night - lovely touch. Food was good and plentiful, staff very attentive and helpful. Our ranger Nicole was superb- very friendly and knowledgeable. We saw a huge range of birds and game, in fact the only one of the big five we didn't see was the leopard. Sundowners during the drive before dinner were a great idea as was the light breakfast on the morning drive.Visited the Kwa cheetah breeding centre and there we saw leopard and cheetahs who will eventually be released back into the wild. well worth a visit. Having been to big resorts in Kenya, I thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend this resort. NB - it is a long way from the road along a dirt road, about 10 KM. Pity I cant add photos, I have some great shots
