The site felt a bit older, but still wonderful. Finally saw good leopard - three in a small area all eyeing each other. You know its good when the guide gets his camera out. Kept being surrounded by elephants at the lodge. once you get a bit more relaxed to seeing an elephant from, say, ten foot away through a fly screen, you start to realise quite what an amazing thing you are seeing.

Would give them a 5 except for a lack of any way to communicate between rooms. Maybe walkie talkie's or something - having small children alone by themselves with no communication is a concern considering the amount of animals that roam the camp. Made a big deal about our anniversary which was appreciated.

Loved this place so much - probably our favourite as it is so small and intimate. Loved the guide here - Moses and all the staff were special, especially George and our room maid. They made us feel very special here. Beautiful canoe ride. Such fantastic game drives - lion kill when we first arrived, African dogs, lighting storm (with us in the middle watching but safe and animals going crazy in the storm on the plains)
