A wonderful experience. The first time I visited South Africa and this accommodation made me dream of the next time I go there. Very nice accommodation and awesome food. But the best thing was the staff who worked there who were very nice and you got very close to all the staff.

Thanks for your feedback and it's great to hear that you enjoyed your guided activities, wildlife sightings, food and interactions with the staff so much! The pool was enlarged during the upgrade and expansion of the camp which was completed in April 2018. Yours is the only negative comment that we have ever received about the size of the pool which can be clearly seen on the homepage of our website. Between guided activities, most of our guests thoroughly enjoy relaxing in or next to the pool, reading a book in the outdoor covered lounge area, or absorbing the sights and sounds of the African bush, wildlife, and birdlife from the covered deck that overlooks the riverbed in front of the camp. Some guests enjoy browsing through our curio shop and everyone enjoys the bushcraft and survival demonstration given by the Trackers. We wish you all the best for your future travels.
