"The owner was present while we were there and the managers love it and treat it as home. Managers were lovely. They didnt seem to know it was our honeymoon though (and when owner realised he aranged some sparkling wine for our room) and didn't cater as well for my wheat intolerance - the first night there wasnt much I could eat. We met some lovely people at this camp and saw a pack of rare african wild dogs whihc was a real treat."
