We have just returned from our fourth visit to this amazing lodge and once again had a fantastic time.
Dennis the camp manager always goes out of his way to spoil us even driving miles to get my son mangoes. Our butler David was the best butler we have ever had, he was attentive but unobtrusive, always laughing and smiling and our glasses were never empty, even when we were up chatting by the fire late at night he was still there looking after us with a smile.
The food has improved dramatically since our last visit and Grimand the chef took excellent care of us even making us sticky rib pizza cause we didn't feel like the food on the lunch time menu. He went out of his way to make our favorite foods like Kudu and sticky ribs and Greek lamb koftas. He spent ages typing out his recipes for me.
The sightings around tented camp are amazing and in one day we saw two different packs of wild dogs including one pack kill an impala, was amazing.
The tents are really luxurious and my only gripe is the very uncomfortable chairs on the tents decks but apparently they will be changing that soon. Tents have underfloor heating and AC and a nice big bath and outdoor shower. Tea is brought to your tent in the morning by the very friendly security guards when they wake you up.
Overall a very well run camp with super friendly staff and delicious food, fantastic game and we will be back.
