From the moment we arrived we were taken back by the the set up and the service. We were met with a cold refreshing drink and a cold towel and shortly after afternoon tea was served was served (all meals were fantastic) and then we went out for our first game drive with Takura (charles). What this man did not know was not worth knowing and his sense of humour was great (don't be surprised if he spins a yarn or 2).
We arrived back to dinner and then was shown to our room where there had laid rose petals and had a bottle of champagne chilled and wiring for us along with the bath having been drawn.
The rooms were clean and beds comfortable and you are given a call 30 min before your game drive.
I would go back in a heart beat as the staff, surroundings, accommodation and ford were far above the star rating for this place
