This was our first safari and I din't know what to expect. Before we went I admit I was worried about camping, the food and had even thought I would get bored how wrong could I get. Nikki and Alan were fantastic hosts and we were made to feel like invited guests with drinks around the camp fire overlooking the Zambezi, food that would make a Michelin star restuarant proud, good company and animals everywhere even in the camp with Dexter the hippo being a regular visitor. We had game drives twice a day and Alan was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the animals welfare. We were offered biscuits baked fresh that morning when we stopped mid morning and appetisers when we stopped to watch the sun go down in the evening. One evening we had bush fair with a table with linen table cloth, cutlery and glasses under the stars and candles lighting the way to a commode - great touch. When we arrived back at camp our wonderful majinder/butler Chris, took us back to our tent where he had run us a bath, lit with candles and a message written in leaves that said 'have a lovely bath'. The tent was incredible with a soft bed with beautiful linen, twin showers and sinks, a settee looking out over our own pool with the Zambezi river just beyond. If this is camping I think we'll sell our house and move now. Thank you Nikki and Alan we certainly hope to be back soon.
