You have to go here, I went to the camp when it was in the South and cannot recommend it enough. Quite simply the experience of a lifetime. I went with my 14 year old son and from the minute we arrived I knew we were going to have an amazing time. (The owner, Alex Walker, taught my son to drive in one of the 4x4 jeeps, one of the highlights for him as he went charging down a dirt track!) The camp itself is beautiful, the tents so, so comfortable, with lovely furniture and a far cry from any camping that I know. The attention to detail is what impressed me most, lovely crisp sheets, hot water bottles at night, fresh coffee brought to you in the morning. The wildlife was truly exceptional, too many highlights to list but seeing a one day old elephant in the wild was extraordinary and has to have a mention. The guides were so friendly and knowledgable, and each safari brought its own excitements, cheetahs, hyenas, wild dog and herds and herds of wildebeest. Nothing was ever too much trouble for any of the staff. After an early morning safari, breakfast was served out of the back of the jeep and eaten whilst watching the giraffes grazing, back to camp for a delicious lunch, perhaps a walking safari in the afternoon, sundowners at magic hour set up overlooking the plains one night, overlooking a lake the next, a glass of wine sitting around the camp fire and then a delicious dinner. Exceptional.
