From the moment we were greeted by Shepherd and given a welcome drink and cold towel we knew we were in for a memorable experience. This is glamping! After a long drive from Chobe it was a delight to sit down at the beautifully set table for lunch, and then revived, shown to our room/tent chalet! Everything was beautifully decorated - from the huge bed and gorgeous bedhead, designer bath with views to the waterhole, outdoor shower. Sundowners at The Eye watching the sunset was also unforgettable and then returning for dinner and then sitting around the camp fire (African TV) surrounded by hundreds of elephants who after splashing around in the waterhole decided that the swimming pool was also a great source of water. Loved it all - the standard of accommodation, food & service was outstanding. Highly recommend and the game drives on their private concession as well as Hwange National Park and the Painted Dog Conservation Centre close by. Stay 3 days minimum - it is worth every cent!
