Great service - great food and fantastic game drives :)
Very friendly staff - ranger and tracker (Evan and Musi) definitely went the extra mile to make us feel welcome and ensure that our stay, game drives and walks were 10/10 :)

The staff were most welcoming and professional in all their dealings. I thought the meals were excellent: varied, well-balanced and delicious. The presentation was superb!
It was of course a memorable experience to see the elephants up close and to see wild life in their natural habitat.

Fabulous. 4 out of 5
