The Reserve is amazing! The rooms were gorgeous, the food excellent and the staff were all friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. Our guide, Chris, was incredible, extremely knowledgeable about all of the wildlife and he went out of his way to make sure we saw all of the animals. It was a wonderful experience!
