Their information and enthusiasm and obvious enjoyment of their jobs were reflected in their excitement in relaying stories of their experiences.
The Lodge itself was a delight. The rooms were large and their beds were were welcomed at the end of the day.
Meals were a great experience and the diversity of meals was fantastic and nourishing. The conversations at meal times with other travellers were always enthusiastic as we all relayed our daily experiences.
The girls at dinner time , with their singing and invitations were incredible...well done!!!.
No TV ......absolutely fantastic!!!!!!
All of the guides and helpers did an incredible job ....all with cheeky senses of humour.(Giraffe milk tarts.....)
An incredible stay at a top class facility with
great guides, staff and owners...
