This was my first stay at a safari camp and I absolutely loved every second of it - the team was lovely and very helpful. They organised everything (Transport to/from Joburg, pickup, etc) and were very attentive in general. I would have loved to stay longer and will definitely consider coming back. Thanks everyone for a fantastic experience.
