We have safari'd before in South Africa so we had high expectations going into this trip.
The flight from Nairobi was only about 25 minutes and the transfer to the camp about an hour (with sone lion spotting on the drive in).
The camp is a nice mix of basic and luxurious, the tents all have a great view across the river and we had a groups of elephants watching our arrival into camp.
Our hosts Alex and Diana (and their team) really made the experience perfect. The combination of knowledge, passion, humour, hospitality and experience made our stay perfect. This is a lodge so great we would come back even if there were no animals - and we saw plenty of them!
Our morning run across the plains was a once in a life time experience, as were sunsets drinks beside the waterhole.
Alex and Diana are able to sort out all aspects of the trip, helping out with internal flights and transfers.
All in all our experience was perfect, definitely a trip worth buying a safari suit for!
