"Good viewing"

4 nights Arrived 17 Sep 2019
"Started off badly as our collection from the airstrip was an hour late. The pilot and member from ABC camps had to wait with us until we were collected - they expected us an hour later than we were.

Accommodation was in simple but more than adequate tents with decking and a couple of chairs. It was great to watch the elephants walking past during the early hours. The site is overlooking the flood plain so elephants walked through on a regular basis, as well as other animals at night.

Lunch and dinner were good. Breakfast not so good as it consisted of tea or coffee and porridge, which I personally never eat. A few days there were seed bars or apples available but not each day, which meant I didn't eat until lunch time. Just fruit salad and some yoghurt would have been enough.

All staff were helpful and guiding was good." See all these reviews: 13n in Zimbabwe

"John's camp review"

2 nights Arrived 13 Jul 2017
"A very special little camp.
It felt like a proper bush camp which we loved, but also had a luxury feel to it.
The tents were really lovely with great views.
The food was excellent.
We were lucky enough to meet John Stevens who was a delightful man and whose knowledge of the bush is second to none.
It made the stay there feel even more special.
Milo, David and all the staff there looked after us incredibly well.
Thank you everyone, we had a great time!
