What an amazing combination. A lodge that has tought of everything located in possibly one of the most amazing settings nature has provided. I loved the balance between the understated luxury of the property and the use of local natural material and design. I had expected a few days of basic food and was delighted to find the most incredibly delicious food. Lunch on the first day was chicken breasts in a balsamic reduction over corn pancakes. I still do not know how the chef produced all the wonderful things he did. In fact all the staff were fantastic. Sean our wonderful host was always around to answer questions and made you feel at home. James our safari guide was incredibly knowledgeable and had great enthusiasm for the animals and the park. I don't think there is enough space to describe the park and the animals we saw. I had been to Africa on Safari before but this was head and shoulders above my other experiences. The number of animals we saw was almost mind blowing. It really gave you a feel that you were at one with nature, you were visiting the animals home and not chasing after a few animals in a park. Don't miss the walking Safari. If you want to see and feel Africa but want a bit of luxury when you are not out in the wild, this is the place to be!
