We stayed here for one night and I wish it could have been a week. The tented camp in the middle if no where was truly amazing. The tents were spotless and had every thing you would need. They were very chic really. Comfy beds with a beautiful canopy over head that the staff came and put down at night when they turned the beds down. There was a book of information that told you all about the place who started and when which made a nice read when you were sitting out on your terrace watching the animals walk past totally unbelievable. After an early morning breakfast we were off on our drive and when we returned for lunch we had a dip in the swimming pool which was a welcome relief to the afternoon sun. Just as we settled for an hour the rain came and it was like rain I had never seen but this was not a problem we settled into the bar area and watched the lightening storm and the animals walking around. We decided not to go on our afternoon drive but to stay where we were and take in the whole atmosphere of the place as it was really breath taking. We sat there for a couple of hours taking to others and the staff. We went to change for dinner and returned to the bar for a drink before dinner and as we were there the staff noticed some thing outside when suddenly the owner came and started to pull us outside to show us some thing it was a leopard just walking through the site it was magical. We were so pleased that we had not gone for our drive that afternoon or we would still be getting ready for dinner and missed it. The staff are amazing and friendly and will go that extra mile to make your stay perfect the owner was there and very friendly engaging in conversation. The masi men Tom and Harrison are really fab they can spot an animal up to 250 meters away and have fantastic story's to tell you. They escort you to and from your tent once the sun has gone down. It's lights out at 11pm but we sat on our terrace till late and the animals were still walking about we never once feel uneasy or scared which is unreal as I jump at the site of a spider at home. Now for the food which was outstanding it was al carte all the way breakfast lunch and dinner and it was mouth watering. The whole experience for me was a dream come true and I will be returning next year to take Tom and Harrison up on the offer of a walk through the bush with them. I would strongly suggest that when you are out on your safari that you spend a night here you will love the place so a big thank you to all the staff and see you next time Lorraine and Carol
