Did not know what to expect as this was our first time in Africa and on safari, however everything was beyond what we could have ever imagined. Our room was nice and large and had adequate air conditioning as it was 38 degrees C. We had a very accommodating butler, Aubrey, who looked after us very well. The meals were all fantastic and included a South African braii one night. Our game drives were amazing and we were able to see many different animals up close! Thanks to Joe and Humphrey for being such a great team to take us on each of these adventures. Everything there exceeded our expectations. I loved every minute of it, but what I really must tell you is how the staff goes above and beyond for their guests. We were to leave the day that a tropical cyclone was beginning to hit Hoedspruit and the flights were beginning to get cancelled as the weather deteriorated. We were eager to be on our way as we wanted to continue our vacation and not be stuck for several days in bad weather so Colin and the staff were right on top of it, figuring alternative ways for us to travel to get out of the path of the storm. Without their help, and how quickly they were able to organize things, we would have not been able to catch a different flight and avoid the cyclone. Thanks again to Colin and the rest of the staff for all that you did for us!!!
