The Nyaland trail is absolutely beautiful with the temporary camp set overlooking the stunning river now replacing the previous permanent camp. It’s a Birder’s paradise but as far as Game goes, don’t have high expectations. Elephants and Nyalas dominate here. The camp itself is lovely,...More

Wilderness trails are (IMHO) the best way to enjoy the bush. Watching Elephants taking a mud bath from just 100m away is simply stunning and unforgettable. As already pointed out, the setting of the camp is absolutely stunning: the tents just adds to the feeling...More
