This was my first visit to South Africa and my first safari and I cannot imagine ever having a better experience - from the game drives, with the wonderful Ben, to the wonderful food (Kudu Curry was the highlight) and great staff. The location and accommodation were brilliant with the secluded villas offering luxury - the outside plunge pool, sunbathing area and shower were an added bonus. We ate outside at the braai twice in the four days that we were there. We saw the 'Big 5' very quickly and had the sensational, and slightly disturbing, site of a leopard killing a male warthog only feet from the game vehicle that we were in - he was then chased off his kill by 4 hyenas who suddenly appeared. A place and experience that I will never forget !!
