I went with my step-mother for a 4-day/3-night trip. We didn't have a lot of time but our game driver made sure we had the best experience possible by squeezing in a drive the morning we left. We saw every animal and more with the exception of the rhino. The game drives (twice a day) culminated into the most unique and treasured experience of my life. Our game driver was absolutely dedicated to making sure we had the best chance of seeing many many incredible animal species and he was as excited as we were. The staff are all so incredibly nice, we felt like family. The food was absolutely excellent, I enjoyed every meal and each was unique and decadent. My only complaint was the salty tap water but they provided bottled water for us and other beverages. We had a lot of sightings right in the river bed and on the paths surrounding the camp. I recommend this establishment to anyone! :)
