We can not fault this place and the staff made it fantastic. Upon arrival we were greeted by the staff and then dinner was waiting for us . We met our Ranger Pheanius who was also amazing with such knowledge and experience. Unfortunately we only stayed 4 nights and could have quite easily have stayed another week. The lodges were perfect and we felt so lucky to have chosen this place to stay. The views out of our bedroom and bathrooms were amazing and you feel like you are safe but able to experience the wildlife up close. One night there had actually been lions walking past whilst we slept as we were awoken by some growling ... this just added to the feeling that you are truly in the wild and such a wonderful place.
The food was also lovely and more than you could eat ! Afternoon tea's , morning cuppas and snacks , followed by three full meals , can never be said there was not enough!
The actual game drives were great, we found we liked the early mornings better than the evenings but the evenings give you different animals to see and a whole different perspective. Our children , 22 and 13 years thought it was the most amazing thing they had done and that is quite an achievement after living and moving abroad a lot. They loved our ranger who was fantastic,,,, I can go on and on as the manager was so helpful and the staff perfect. Even sang to us on a couple of evenings and that was also very special.
Would absolutely recommend and is still one of our best places on on 3 month tour of the southern hemisphere.
This time of year was also good as it was not too warm and the trees are not all in leaf so we could see the animals better. We have some amazing photo's and the great thing is that they can get real close up. Keep up the great work and looking forward to returning soon.
