The wooden deck...

Sorry for the very late review. Our guide at this incredible tented safari experience was Shaun Malan. From the moment he picked us up right to when we were dropped off, we were in awe. He was so polite, his eye for a good photo ensured that we never missed a picture that we wanted, and it was so enlightening...
