It was awesome, a perfect getaway from real life. Superb rooms, friendly hosts, great game drives and delicious food. During our stay a we saw a lot of animals and learnt many interesting facts about the bush. Highlight was when some elephants had a swim at the waterhole and one elephant even came to drink out of our pool just 2m from where we were laying.
