This is a really special place. Luxury accommodation with five star cuisine in the African bush, surrounded by the world's most exotic wildlife. But more than that, the staff is their strong suit. They are attentive in such an old world way. When you leave and they all line up to wish you good bye, and stay to wave as your cab pulls away, well, it's hard not to get a little choked up, even if you know they do it for everyone. Our guide, Eric, was really special if you can make sure that gets communicated.
