To David Kelly and his A Team .. Thank you all for making our 3 night stay at Thornicroft a relaxing time. David leads his staff in a very pleasant way and they provide friendly assistance in every task. The food was plentiful and well presented.
Our guide was passionate, knowledgeable and keen to show what the park can offer and we were rewarded with watching wild dog at close range.
The location of our chalet right on the river was exciting especially the visit by three elephants at our front door in the early hours!!
Thank you all for a memorable visit and we encourage anyone considering a trip to this part of the world to book into Thornicroft Lodge. Pauline and Peter
