From the moment we were greeted all of the staff in the warm African tradtion, we knew we were in for something special. The Thakadu River Camp was an awesome experience from start to finish. The food was excellent (roast warthog one night) and the luxurious tents took our breath away twice (once on arrival and later after the turn-down).
The game drives were spectacular... Our ranger, Ignatius, was enthusiastic and an encyclopedia of knowledge. We had up close and 5 of 5 visuals on all of the Big Five except the elusive Leopard - and we just missed seeing one stalking an impala (they are quite stealthy). A tip of my hat goes to Iggy for saving us during a spectacular encounter with a musking bull elephant.
Bottom line - Thakadu River camp will make lasting memories. I felt especially pleased that the local community owned and operated the lodge.
