Migration Camp holiday reviews

"An excellent choice, a stunning camp and location. Well managed with excellent staff – helpful and friendly. Approached over a substantial wooden walkway across a seasonal water course the main lodge was on three tiers down the hillside; administration at the top, followed by a lounge, curio shop and boma, leading on to wash rooms, a pool with sunbathing area and the restaurant (with terrace looking out over the river valley below and the bush beyond). Further steps lead down to the camp area where the large tents, each on its own wooden platform (giving a veranda all the way round) and solar water heating unit, were well spaced out over the valley floor, with a further rocky fall to the river below (complete with Hippo pool). Like many camps there was a requirement to be escorted to and from ones tent after dark: for the first time in my experience this was actually necessary. One night two hippos were observed grazing just outside our tent, while another night it was a giraffe, then a buffalo. While for about twenty four hours a couple of elephants wrecked a number of trees as they browsed their way through the camp. The tent were very comfortably furnished and in some style. An extra large bed, desk and chair, sofa and easy chair plus other furnishings all sat well together. Finished off with an excellent shower, double wash basin unit and separate loo completed the facilities. Twenty four hour electricity added to comfort and convenience. Generally the food was good, very good even. The style of cooking was a bit pretentious, and they did not always pull it off. But for me, diabetic requirement apart, I can eat and enjoy anything and I did enjoy the food, the style of cooking was not however quite to my wife’s taste although one meal apart this was not a problem. The homemade soups, the bread, pastries and buns, and the jams and marmalades were all particularly good."
