Great visit - would have liked a few more days.

Posted Feb 27, 2017
Pros: camp site is very luxurious and comfortable - yet right in the bush. Staff was great and food was excellent. Doug and Mdu - excellent guides
Cons: nothing
Location: walking safari is awesome - night drive/walk awesome as well. down time in between
Short stay in between south African conferences. Everything was beyond what was advertised. Location is superb as was staff. Safaris are great - the 3 hour walking in the early AM - you are right in the mix. Saw 4 of big five (no Leopard) White and Black Rhino and wild dogs.

Pros: The people were extremely helpful and friendly. The food and service was excellent. They catered to our every need.
Cons: For the evening safaris I would have preferred more walking and less driving.
Location: Its location within Kruger National Park provides the best way to see the animals in their natural environment.

Fabulous camp, slightly soured by the guide

Location fantastic - right in Kruger overlooking a watering hole that is regularly visited by animals. Kitchen staff are fantastic. Food is great, snacks plentiful. Cold drinks always available. The tents are beautifully done, very tasteful. You do have a fan above the bed but this will only work when the generator is on, it can get v hot. There a lots of reviews about Bernhard being a 'legend', we wanted to write a review that would help other people decide if this trip is for them. Bernhard is an excellent tracker & will find you animals. However, he will only take you to animals he wants to see. His style of guiding is very 'macho' & all about getting you so close to get the perfect tourist photo that it scares the animals, who then feel the need to charge you to protect themselves/ babies. This can be quite terrifying when it's a hippo or a rhino. On a day when he picked a terrapin out of the water and threw it on the ground to show us we felt he didn't respect the animals at all. After a group guest conversation where we all expressed a preference to see some giraffes/ zebras he did then take us to see some but acted like a petulant child saying 'I'm sick of zebras' over & over. If it's not on his terms he's not interested. Amos his number 2 was excellent and very professional. In summary, we saw lots of animals & had an amazing time, a brilliant location but with a guide who doesn't make you feel safe on the walks, who doesn't seem to respect the wildlife.
