A small paradise in heaven... The lodge was beautiful and felt more like a family home. The people were truly fantastic from the knowledgable ranger, his adorable wife -secretary-cook, all the local staff, charming, smiling every minute of every day. All was perfect. We had many laughs, saw the most incredible wild animals, ate fabulous food etc... I don't have enough words to describe the intense happiness we experienced.
