After a warm welcome we went on a 'first safari' between the entrance and our Lodges. We were very lucky to see a lot of animals en some close encounters from the start on. Our stay was very nice as we were with a group of 7 persons. The whole lodge was ours and that was a unique opportunity. The main house was amazing with a nice pool with a view on the surrounding nature, a cosy fireplace, nice fridge facilities and a good cooking team.
Our lodges were nicely equiped as we didn't have any lacks. The rooms are luxurious, big enough and provided with WiFi!
The guide took time to seek for the animals, stood in contact with other guides and gave us a lot of information about the fauna and flora.
We would definitely recommend this to everyone who would like to live relaxed in nature, see some close encounters and have a nice experience together.
