We stayed here for 3 nights in May (sorry for the late writeup!).
The staff and accomodation were excellent and the food was amazing, be prepared to put on half a stone in 3 days!.
We were taken on 5 safaris in total (2 morning and 3 afternoon). The rangers were brilliant, there were only 4 people in our jeep (including ourselves). We seen the big 5 which were amazing. After we had seen them our ranger took us on an excursion for our last safari where we were driving through a herd of 60 elephants crossing the road. Realxing on the decking in your lodge watching wild animal drinking and playing was breathtaking, we even had baboon wars!
My partner organised a private dinner on our balcony and proposed, it could not have been in a more perfect location. Thanks to everyone involved for making this a holiday of a lifetime.
I often see reviews about people complaining about wifi, well to me if you are in this location and want to go online then your totally spoiling your trip!
