We wanted to go mainly for wildlife watching and it was the perfect place. Although nothing is every guarenteed, our guide really tried to find the animals we were most hoping to see and gave really good information about them. We saw wild dog, leopard, and a lioness and her cubs, as well as many others.
If I am traveling in the area again, I will go back to this camp. The tents were clean, the camp staff really took our input as to what activities we wanted to do (they even organized a night drive because we asked), and they prepared delecious meals, snacks,and drinks, I was never hunger, that's for sure. All of our experiences with the camp from food to game drives and mokoros were top notch.
My one complaint is that tents were closer together than I was expecting.The camp is right on the river and we were often able to see elephants and hippos and they did come up on the river bank at night so maybe that is why the tents are spaced as they are, for safety.
