    Very good experience for a first time to Africa. The setting was beautiful and exciting with animals so close. Excellent attempts by guides to work together and find animals for us to see. Friendly and capable staff, good food

    True natural beauty with luxury and great hospitality. The game drives with Doug were great and the sounds of the bush a great bedtime story. Rooms were perfect, with huge cosy bed shower and bath with a view and every comfort you need.
