    Awesome location, animals, game guide staff, kitchen waiters, food. Poor reception, checkout, room service. Sadly missing management, culture or lodge personality. Would appreciate a little more sense that there was a caring 'team' behind some great individuals, who show genuine interest and enthusiasm. Rather dull.More

    I would mostly recommend a good zoom lens - you will see hopefully some animals very close, but others mights just sleep somewhere under a bush in the distance.
