With no idea what to expect we found ourselves in the middle of nowhere in a moveable tented camp with hot showers and flush toilets. The tents are big with the most comfortable beds you could imagine, ok they have to heat water for the shower but no big deal, the staff were fabulous and a credit to the camp manager Richard. Nothing was too much trouble for these guys, woken up at a pre-determined time with tea and coffee in bed, sensational food prepared from a primitive camp kitchen, all drinks included with a good selection of beers, spirits and wine, laundry done each day and the best of all, the lions roaring (mating) at night behind the tent.
We had 4 fabulous days at Lemala and could have stayed longer. Apart from the accommodation, the experience of being in the wilderness and not confined to specified roads was one to be remembered. In this area we were able to drive to the game rather than waiting from them to come to the road. Long, long days and a wonderful place to come back to and relax at night.
Would definitely come back again, this was close to being the highlight of a 3 week trip to Africa.
