Just spent a wonderful three days at this camp. Wonderful staff lead by the manager, Nelson. Excellent guided drives; we saw a wide variety of animals including lions, cheetahs and leopards. Very comfortable spacious tents with quirky bucket showers. Great bar and dining area amongst the trees overlooking the river. We would love to return again to this camp.
