This was our first safari and we stayed in the great fish river lodge. The service from the second we arrived was faultless. I'll review each element one at a time so I don't waffle!
Location - absolutely stunning
Accommodation - everyone had an individual lodge, which was beautifully furnished. The indoor and out showers were great and the plunge pool was lovely (although keep your eye out for the wildlife walking by )
Food - quality was exceptional and let's just say you'll not go home hungry!
Safari - we were blown away by the experience. You get so up close and personal with the animals, it's incredible. The early morning drives were fun and when you know what you're there for, it makes the early start easy.
Staff - last but by no means least! All of the staff were exceptional and couldn't have been friendlier. Our ranger Ivan and spotter Sibo (or the dream team as we named them!) were a joy to be with. So knowledgeable it was amazing and there ability to track the animals would leave you lost for words. They made the experience unforgettable!
It was a birthday celebration trip and on our last night we arrived back to our lodge to find candles lit, a warm bath poured and a gift on the bed. What a perfect way to end our trip!
A big thank you to all of the staff a Kwandwe - it was awesome!!
