We stayed 3 nights at the Bush camp and 3 nights at the main camp.
The Bush camp is an awesome experience. To be able to hear the animals at night and even have a visit from a hyena while we were having dinner was a unique experience. The setting is fabulous – just 3 tents surrounded by trees, a lovely deck to relax on during the heat of the day and a very attractive dining room. The tents are very comfortable and we were looked after the whole time with excellent service, good meals and superb game drives. Being right in the reserve means the action starts the minute you get on the vehicle. Sometimes we drove for some time without many sightings but the surroundings are so peaceful, the sunsets and sunrises unreal and when the action does start the experience is one to be treasured. Spending time with leopards, lions, a cheetah, elephants, rhino, giraffe, hyena and then the smaller things like dwarf mongoose, civet, tree squirrels, even a dung beetle. Just magic and enhanced by the skill and knowledge of the great guides – Jared, Jacques, Bernet, Debbie and Gavin himself. They go far beyond the call of duty such as during the break between drives one day when we were relaxing and suddenly Bernet was calling us to the vehicle for a very quick drive to the river for a sighting of a cheetah – really special.
