  • Sheila from NY gives this tour 

    We loved watching the animal migration, and we were fortunate to see "the Big Five" on our game drives. The sunrise balloon flight was great, soaring over the land just as the sun was coming up. Plus the champagne was flowing at breakfast following the ride. Waking up one morning to a group of lions resting outside our tents. We ate well, food was prepared daily by our camp chef. We visited two local schools. One member of our group is tall - 6'5". the looks on the children' faces as they saw him exiting the van - cute, very cute. Our guide Adam was awesome! His knowledge about plants, birds and the animals was outstanding.
