I cannot say enough about what an incredible trip this was. Not only did we see the “Big 5”, we saw all of them at least twice during our 3 days of game drives, as well as elephants mating, lions roaring and hyenas killing and eating their prey. Hannes (ranger) and Vusi (tracker) are so knowledgeable and passionate about what they do. We all agreed we had the best ranger/tracker team in the reserve. In addition, the hospitality we received from the staff at the lodge as well as the meals we were served were outstanding. Having traveled extensively in the U.S. and internationally, I can honestly say this is the new highlight of my travels, truly the “trip of a lifetime”. I will be recommending Waterbuck to all my friends and family and hope to return myself someday!
