Safari was on the disappointing side, we were unimpressed with the ranger, young and immature with limited knowledge of the little wild life we saw. However we did see lots of Elephants (which you would expect as it holds the densest Elephant population in the world) and some Lions but this was only as we found them, our ranger would have driven straight past!!
On the positive side the camp itself is truely unique. Well appointed clean, comfortable tents, we were greeted with Champagne and chocolates on arrival for our honeymoon. In the morning (as it was quiet on camp) a tea/coffee tray and fresh muffins was bought to your tent. Tasty breakfasts and lunches we offered before a gastronomic feast of delights for dinner. At night this delightful camp is lit only with candlelight, it is truely charming. The camp has no fences so you are escorted after dark to and from you tent as wild animals are free to roam, which only adds to the exciting experience.
The hotel staff are excellent particularly Diane. Our car was even cleaned and stocked with snacks and water for us before we left.
Great 'Out of Africa' experience. Well worth a visit and safari is truley wild so you may well get to see the Big 5!!
