Been to most of the camps and they are generally good.
No fences so watch out for the Hyhena's in the camp.
Ihah is our best camp as you can sit and watch the animals passing all day.
How many people joining you as the sites can take 8 people?

Going to some of the other camps in April/May 2016

Have they sorted out the (alleged) security things at Ihaha - people coming across the river and stealing your stuff while you are in dreamland?
Groete/Regards,

Hi
Looks like a nice tour would like to go but I have one from 30 July -13 Aug Botswana, and then a back to back from 13 Aug -25 Aug Kruger Park

If I have some enquiries can I contact you for the same time?

the last camp furthest away from the toilets. watch out for the baboons late afternoon in the trees above they will shit and piss on you/tent and you will not get them out till dawn. Not even the Leopard gets them out.
