Everything about our stay was fabulous! Twice daily safaris with a fabulous ranger (Hamilton) meant that we were able to see all of the animals we dreamed of seeing in Africa. The meals were scrumptious, the staff were amazing, the accommodations were great, everything was perfect.

We had some great sightings - all the Big Five plus hyenas and cheetah, all within touching distance! Loved the open air vehicles. The food...
