This camp was fantastic, from the moment we arrived, to a welcome with the staff singing a welcome song to when we left, I felt we were saying goodbye to friends. The acting manager Julie, is terrific. Nothing was too much trouble.....in fact I had left a medication at home, and they had it flown in for me! The food was great, and I enjoyed the variety and inclusion of some Botswanian choices. Unfortunately it was quite wet when we stayed, but this didn't spoil our experience nor stop us from seeing anything that was available near or far from the camp. Once again our guide/tracker ....Rain (phonetically spelt) was a legend, and the bush bashing we did to hunt and shoot (with our cameras) was fantastic. The selection of game we saw here was awesome, and the inclusion of a mocorro .....canoe ride was very special. No paws and claws with this ride, just the serenity and beauty surrounding sounds. As with all the camps the 'sundowners' drink and nibbles s a hit. G&T anyone? Loved this place, there was something very special, not only the setting, but the guide and managers made it a definite to include in your safari experience.
