Our 3rd DDS camp and more of a hotel than Leroo Le Tau (12 rooms, thatched roof) or Camp O (12 rooms, tents) so initially a bit of a culture shock.. as this is definitely a hotel not a camp.
Our guide Lynn was excellent, within 15 minutes of setting off, a leopard had been spotted and off we went in search.. he was still sitting in his tree as we arrived, shortly afterwards 3 lionesses wandered under the tree.
More lions were spotted on our subsequent drives, including a lioness with her cubs. We witnesses lion attacks, the first on an impala which escaped, the second on a baby buffalo who had become separated from the herd, and did not recover.
River cruise also interesting with a chance to get close to the crocs, warthogs wandered around the grounds in the afternoons.
Thank you to the lady on the Activity desk, I mentioned in passing that our daughter would be celebrating her 18th at the Falls, not only was a card and platter delivered to her room, but our dinner was special as well - a private table on the sundeck with a cake and the staff singing Happy Birthday - an evening we will always remember.
Mention should also be made of the exceptional service provided by the Airlink staff, all transfers were great, and when our son (20!) left his sunglasses on a Cessna, they arrived at Chobe the next day.
