Spent two nights at this wonderfull camp. We were picked up from the jetty by our guide Angel -and right upon arrival at the camp, we were well informed about the do's and don't s during our stay. Every single one of the staff was very friendly and very welcoming. Our tent was a real oldfashioned safaritent -just the way we like it, with bathroom in the back and a little area in front where we could sit and watch the river -or the monkeys and the warthogs who played and grazed on the lawn. Angel was a great guide and driver on the drives and the boat safaris. Very knowledgable about the birds and animals. And though everybody were doing their best to make us feel at home -our waiter Maxwell is worth mentioning for always making us laugh and bringing a good mood to the table. If people stay for more than one night, I'd recommend doing one gamedrive in the Rhino Sanctuary -as it is a completely different experiance than the rest of Liwonde National Park!
