Service was excellent! Very friendly staff! Food was not the best value for money- but very nice. The morning bush walks is a MUST! We learned so much from our friendly guide and walking and touching the cheetahs was amazing!! We shall return soon !

Yes, this is the same camp although sadly Gerry the giraffe is not with us any more. The original owners have also since passed away leaving the Main Lodge and Marula Camp in the very capable hands of Chris and his family.
