After last years visit we just had to bring our son, his wife and our two grand sons to experience this fantastic place with this friendly people. We became good friends with Philip and Jeremy last year and had an unforgettable time game watching with them . We inquired if it was possible to meet them again. And can you believe it, they postponed their vacation and spent two unforgettable days together with us. We did not see the lions on the first two safaris but when we rested at noon, Philip searched for the lions in the bush by feet - brave man - and found them!! After noon Philip and Jeremy managed to drive to the tree male lions resting in the shadow. No roads, but with help of machete and skill they managed, What a thrill for all of us.
We saw lots of other animals and together with their knowledge and the willingness to share it with us made everything just fantastic. Big groups of elephants, giraffes and antelopes, some buffaloes, warthogs, ostriches, etc.
The rest of the staff and kitchen are top class. I have been travelling most over the world, but this is my favorite place.
