From the first moment of the warm welcome, to the last moment of the fond farewell, this accommodation was exceptional. There were only five guests and we were treated like royalty. The dining room is cleverly designed, so that each table could feel reasonably private. The tables were beautifully decorated, the food fresh, varied and local, and the service sensational.
Each morning we woken at 5 for a 5.30 game drive. The vehicles are comfortable, and the ranger and tracker very knowledgeable and competent. They found such a variety of game, including the very rare black rhino, and a pride of lions we visited on each of four drives. They positioned the truck well so we had a great viewing location.
Breakfast after the game drive was again fresh and beautiful then there was a walk offered, perhaps down to the river to watch the hippos. But it was also a good opportunity to sit on the deck of your beautifully appointed room and watch the impala or elephants go by.
The afternoon game drive at 4pm went to another area of the park to see different animals. Then after a freshen up, a wonderful evening meal.
It was all perfect.
