From the moment we arrived mid afternoon on Maundy Thursday everything was great. After a rest a game drive through the estate (just herbivores but including three giraffe) ending with a sundowner in the bush by a fire made by our guide. All very tAme but excellent if like us you have a baby on board or other reason not to want to push things to much . Horse riding on day two and a bracing hike up Rupurara Rock before breakfast on day three. Great to have scones with jam and cream at 4pm each day, wonderful views of breathtaking scenery including from our balcony , a huge bathtub with plenty of hot water. Altogether an excellent place to escape to with very friendly and helpful staff. You do need your own 4x4 for activities involving driving into the estate. Downside: a bit too easy to hear the goings on in the room next door and apparently only one music track in the restaurant (serving trout from the estate) which consisted mainly of awful Italian schmaltz.
