This was my husbands bucket list trip and I went kicking and screaming. boy, was I wrong. First of all, the trip was SAFE. I never felt nervous about security, safety, etc. Second, the service was probably the best we have ever had on any trip. The people were amazing - no request was too crazy for them to handle....

We had great expectations based on reviews, but our stay surpassed the expectations. We were picked up at the airport by Lisa, and although the flight was late and we were going to miss the afternoon drive, she made the impossible and got us to the camp on time. They even had box lunches waiting for us in the jeep....
