          Experience of a lifetime”

          From the moment we arrived, we were very well looked after by Clarinda and the rest of the team. Our lodge was marvellous in every way – an outside rock shower, a huge indoor bath. A beautiful canopied bed to keep the mossies out and a large, very private decking area where we could watch the animals passing by on their way to the watering hole. Housekeeping was just perfect. We never saw them but everything was done for us including putting hot water bottles in our bed for the chilly nights. The food was first class too. The chef obviously takes great pride in the presentation. It was beautiful. The lodge watering hole was just fabulous. One lunchtime, there were 16 elephants drinking from it along with some tiny ones. It was mesmerising and from the viewing tunnel you can get so close to them. Martin our ranger was an absolute star. He went above and beyond to show us the wildlife in the park and we will always be grateful to him for giving us such a magical time. He has encyclopaedic knowledge of everything and his love for the animals shines through. Our twice daily game drives were fantastic. Martin strove to locate different animals each day, using his well-equipped Land Cruiser to reach even the furthest corners of the reserve. His tracking skills were uncanny. One day he followed the tracks of a pack of wild dogs before finally finding them taking a break under a shady bush well away from any recognised path. Stopping for morning coffee and afternoon sundowners in remote areas was always a delight and offered a chance to stretch legs and chat to the other holiday makers. We were so lucky to have Martin and so is Tuningi. We will remember it always.
          Nothing - all good.

          Thought the game experience was a little disappointing. Fewer animals than expected.
