From the first moment to the last everything was perfect and exceeded our expectations.
The accommodations were stunning, service superb and safaris just out of the world. Jamie our ranger and Abraham our tracker showed us more than we could have imagined on our 5 safaris. They were very knowledgeable and gave us an amazing glimpse into a world that was completely new to us.
The meals were of high quality and well prepared. It was beautiful to sit outside for dinner and we also loved the bbq on our last evening.
We were on our honeymoon and the staff went the extra mile to make it even more special. The front manager was fabulous and I'm sorry to say I forgot her name (it was a year ago already!) But something like Tammy perhaps?
Would recommend this experience to anyone and hope to return one day.
