Now, a sceptic might call this place a "zoo". It's a former farm, returned to the wild and stocked with game to provide a modest-sized private game park. So the game drives are almost a game of hide & seek (it's amazing how easily a herd of elephants can hide!), although no less fun for that.
But for what it is it really couldn't be better. The suites are super-luxurious and really comfortable, the food really excellent and the hospitality superb - including the staff giving an impromptu singing concert on the evening we arrived. We were really well looked after, and the game viewing too was great - closest I've ever been to elephants (when we found them!).
A brief but memorable and very worthwhile stay.
