- We saw every animal I was hoping to see apart from a cheetah, plus a wide range of birds. Our driver was very good at identifying all of the birds and animals.
Lodge and camp accomodation was very comfortable and of a higher standard than expected. All had power for charging camera batteries.
As expected there were several early starts for game drives (typically leaving at 06:30), and some quite long days with a reasonable amount of driving, but that meant we had more time to look at the animals rather than sitting by the swimming pool.
If you want decent photos, you need a camera with a good optical zoom (25-400mm was just enough). You should also take a good pair of binoculars, since they provide much better colour and detail than a camera viewfinder.
