The Managers, Warren and his wife Lisha, and their staff went overboard in providing a warm welcome and doing everything possible to make for an enjoyable experience - they succeeded!

Wow! What an amazing experience! Can you imagine seeing zebras and elephants and giraffes and cape buffalo and - I still can't totally believe - leopards and a cheetah from an open to the sky vehicle?

That is the magic about where we live....seeing all these most amazing and beautiful animals all around us.
