We stayed here for 2 nights. We've been on a number of safaris before and stayed at a number of CC Africa camps and this one lived up to their high standards!
The staff were excellent and couldn't do enough for us, the food was superb and the room was really special.
We arrived late one evening to find a hot steaming bubble bath all ready and waiting for us which was a wonderful surprise!
The game drives were excellent and you could choose how long you wanted to go for - we got great sightings of lions, hyenas, hippos, elephants, buffalos, giraffe, flamingos, pelicans etc. Our guide was excellent and made us feel really special.
The park itself is quite crowded with vehicles but because this camp is in the south you hardly ever see another vehicle so it feels like you have the whole place to yourself.
We were worried about going in the 'long rains' season as I didn't want to get stuck anywhere. It did rain but only at night and we had the most exciting thunder storm one night that I've ever experienced! Plus seeing a river bed go from totally dry one day to flowing with rapids the next was a great sight!
This place is well recommended!
