From the moment we met David our guide and checked in a reception we know that our stay was going to be special. This was our final stop on a 2 week visit throughout the garden route so had high expectations.
After a warm arrival we were shown through to grab a coffee before our boat ride up to the game reserve. The scenery was stunning and we saw a number of animals with our guide letting us know the ecology of the area, just as we were coming into camp a couple of elephants decided to say hello.
The next stop was camp, after a quick intro and some lunch (the food was excellent) we had some time to settle in before our first game drive. Just as we were settling into to our room across the river we noticed something big moving... It was a Rhino (from our Room!)
We were so lucky with our stay as we saw 4 out of the big 5 in the park. The staff we excellent from the chef, guides and support team everything was faultless and have our honeymoon the best ending we could have imagined. See the pictures for more, highly recommended!
