Friendly staff, knowledgeable game drive guides (Nando Nando), excellent food. Eating with the staff is a brilliant way to learn about Botswana as well. Staff singing and dancing was such fun and the pre-dinner drinks around the fire great for meeting other travellors. Free bar as well although drink in moderation needed due to the early starts (the hot water bottles were a lovely touch). See if you can do the day long drive - we too saw a huge pod of hippos with Nando and ate lunch under the trees where they sleep. Driving over Third Bridge was an experience after the elephants had trashed it.
