A perfectly located camp next to the river, with wonderful views for observing the ever changing animals coming to drink (including elephant). An incredible sight, especially during breakfast!
I have seen more wildlife than I could possibly imagine; a pride of lions on a kill on my first day; the gentle giraffes; a black rhino mother with her calf; walking on the plains with zebra, gazelle, antelope watching the sun go down! There is also a rich variety of birdlife, including eagles soaring over the camp.
Friendly staff, who are eager to please and always there with a smile, even at dawn with that first coffee!
Gilbert, who deserves a mention, for his fantastic culinary skills. I wasn't expecting such fine four course meals twice a day!
Alex and Diana Hunter who run the camp, have a spectacular knowledge of the area. Their passion for Africa and its future sustainability of the wildlife is evident. The perfect hosts! I was even allowed to drive one of the seven Land Cruisers out on safari.
This trip was everything one expects from a safari and so much more, and done with great style!
