From the moment that Isaac the tracker met me at the park gate and drove me to the camp I knew I was in for a great time.
We arrived in camp to see a bull elephant standing and surveying the landscape. What an opening sighting!
My accommodation was just lovely, very comfortable and clean with plentiful hot water and superb views.
The food was home cooked, nutritious and plentiful. One night our supper was 'disrupted' by a herd of elephant who came to drink at the water hole, what an experience.
The game drives were exceptional. Gawie the guide and Isaac are a superb combination and besides finding all the usual suspects I was so lucky that we caught a rare sighting of a Honey Badger too(not the cute cuddly beast that its name might lead you to believe). Our drives often got very close to the animals but the professionals were always very aware of respecting the animals 'space' and not causing any distress. In fact the pride of lions that we found on several occassions were so relaxed that they just ignored us and carried on grooming and sunning themselves.
If you want to stay somewhere a bit unusual that is very comfortable but rustic at the same time and enjoy some superb game sightings backed up by the exceptional knowledge of the tracker and ranger then do not hesitate to stay here.
I enjoyed it so much I am just trying to work out how quickly I can return.
Thanks to all at nThambo for looking after me so well. Keep up the great work.
