Camped the night at the campsite with a lovely outside shower and toilet area. Could hear the animals in our tent and saw a huge porcupine in the night. Beautiful camping spot with wood provided. Beautiful reserve with lots of animals.

This place is packed with game. There is leopard, cheetah, hyena, and african wild dog. If you are staying overnight at any of the camps, there is plenty of opportunity to go on game drives to see the predators up close.
