I am always reluctant to give top marks in every catagory. Is there really nothing that could be improved? That's exactly what Sonja asked me and I really couldn't think of anything. This is a small camp with a very personal service.
The tents are very comfortable with tiled floors to keep them cool-and keep out bugs that usually appear through wooden floors& luxury bathrooms with showers half open to the bush.
The pool is on the terrace beside the bar,sitting area and dining area. This works very well in a small, peaceful camp where finding a quiet spot will never be a problem.
The boma is cozy and the food excellent but of course the most important thing is the quality of the game drives. That's why you go isn't it?
I have been fortunate to drive with Mike for several years and he remains the best ranger I have had. With James, they make an incredibly knowledgable and enthusiastic team and coupled with an area rich with game-including black rhino- it is a combination that is difficult to beat.
I only hope such a glowing review doesn't mean they are so busy I can't find a space!
