Amakhosi is special - you feel it as you drive up to it and the accommodation is fantastic. The view of the river from the main reception and the river lodges is wonderful and make for some good game viewing. The really special feature for me was the game drives with Sipho. One has to appreciate you cannot see game all the time but with Sipho there was always something to look at and the stories he tells of trees, bees and birds are as fascinating as the game viewing.
The food was excellent, the service in the main delightful and all were trying to please. Yes there were one or two training issues but management were pleased to get the feedback and I am sure will use the opportunity to make things even better.
