We were met and taken to our room and everything was explaned to us.
We arrived for our first high tea and to our english eyes it was a bit odd. Certainly no scones and cream or victoria sponge but as I found out later all the food is african themed.
Then on to our first game drive with Hugo our guide who made our 2 day stay special. He worked so very hard to make the best of our game drives and was very informative considerate and polite.
The reserve were catering for a bus group on our first day and I think that this spoiled the ambiance a little as they had a large table in the centre of the dinning room but on the second day both the breakfast and dinner were better.
We sayed in one of the round huts and they are very private, it was wonderful to lie in bed and look at that amazing view, listen to the animals in the distance and watch the birds.
