“We spent a wonderful night in a luxurious tent: enjoying the food, game drive with the excellent Simon as guide and a relaxing night around the fire in the boma prepared by Lethabo. Karin and her ladies where wonderful hosts! Lying on the big bed and watching the animals grazing about felt like being on a far-away African Safari, definitely not feeling so close to the city. We just wished that we could spend another night. We will definitely be back, bringing our friends so that we can book out the tented camp.” – Kemp TripAdvisor.
