This camp was a great contrast to Eagle Island Camp and all game drives were conducted by jeep. From the moment of our welcome to our departure, the attitude and friendliness of the staff was proof of the culture instilled by Debbie the camp manager. She has a great team and treats staff and clients as part of her family. Service was above expectations in all areas.
Wi-fi is also a welcome addition and is available in all rooms. A nice swimming pool is great to cool off after game drives.
Ness was our very experienced guide, ably assisted by other guides via radio. As a result we enjoyed two close encounters with leopards. Since speaking to many people on tour, this was a rare privilege. We also saw lionesses on our 3 night stay. Nothing stops sundown drinks, demonstrated by the photo of Ness who managed to recover our drinks from the submerged jeep.
We understand there are plans to move the spa to Eagle Island Lodge, one of the other Orient Express lodges. This would be disappointing for guests as we enjoyed our massage after the long drives and believe that people who frequent luxury lodges have an expectation a spa is part of the experience.
