"night to recover from travel"

1 night Arrived 5 Oct 2008
"Lovely welcome splendid position and atmosphere great terrace by the river for cocktails helpful staff good rooms
would probably have benefitted from a further day here. Arrived at 2pm for a 3pm helicopter ride.. and was picked up next morning at 8am.. all felt lovely but a little rushed. I am not sure if we could have dione other things here apart from the falls.. not that we had time!

Helicopter ride was good and well orga nised.
The guide who picked us up the next morning was fab, friendly and helpful."

Lebala Camp

Lebala Camp

"Lebala Camp review"

2 nights Arrived 6 Oct 2008
"I loved it here! Thank you for warning us about the 2 H drive form the air strip. It meant we were ready with the correct clothing, sun screen, hat and in the mood for safari-ing.

Our guide and tracker were lovely: do send our heartfelt thanks to Thabo & Julius, we enjoyed their company very much. They were keen to shsow us as much as possible, always cheerful and fullof information. ( Do hope Thabo has found his 5th wife! by now))Congratulations too to Bisquet 8 not sure I ahev spelled his name correctly) for running a tight ship.. all worked well. staff were friendly and helpful. Did not seem to know about our wheat intolerance but rallied and sorted it out.

The rooms were large and comfortable. Really liked the rhythm of the camp.. worked well for me . In the camp was a very experienced safari traveller who seemed to know a lot and was quite keen to tell everyone.. so the staff gently put her in a jeep of her own with her friend and their own guide and tracker.. this was kind to everyone I thought!

We wre never more than 4 guests in a jeep in either of the camps.. really nice. Impressed with Kwando camps."

"Little Kwara review"

3 nights Arrived 8 Oct 2008
"Was really sad to leave Lebala camp and our new found friends staff and guests alike but settled really quickly with the help of fab staff here: Kia, Lizzie, Jacob and kenneth. Doi please let them know we had the best holiday of our lives and still talk about them! Great group. Very friendly and exceeded our expectations.

Food lovely and adjusted for my wheat intolerence. Knowledgeable, relaxed, punctual, helpful ( I lost my sun glasses which was a major disaster but the camp staff contacted the head office in maun and 12 h later I have new shades at the very reasonable cost of $30 dollors: amazing!).

Saw loads of animals in both camps: Lions, cheetahs, leopards, hyenas, jackals, hippos, elephasnts, baboons, antelope, wilder beats, buffalo, zebras, giraffes birds, trtees, wild life. Little kwara cam was very cocmfortable, clean and spacious. Oil lamps were reallay pretty especially when all lit when we returned home after our night drive. Also noce to be met by Kia and a glass of Sherry! very personal touch we thought.

All our flights were punctual and the staff were friendly and helpful. Felt safe at all times even in tiny planes in the middle of no where!"

"Bay Hotel review"

5 nights Arrived 11 Oct 2008
"This aprt of our holidays felt a little less well orgaanised in general than our Zambia/Botswana part. The hotel was great, cape town in a fab setting but misssed the bush!

Felt like an avetrage city kind of break altho in a beautiful place: table mmountain, camaps Bay.. but also barbed wire and shanty towns.. enjoyed it never the les. Had a few beauty treatments here which were OK. Hair dresser was not polite or nice.. Steven certainly would not go back!"
