On our safari cruises we learnt a lot about the beautiful South African culture and nature with great thanks to Ranger Ryan. While there is no guarantee to see any of the animals, as an authentic...

This was a remote bush camp. We went to see the animals, it is remote and many items in the room were broken, ( like flaps/windows) , not outlets to charge electrical devices and our safe did not work, The staff were VERY nice, but accommodations need upkeep.
