Absolutely loved it, the food was great, the people were really good to hang out with and taught me a lot about the bush. The room I stayed in was very clean and comfortable, with excellent service the whole time. We had all sort of animals wandering around the lodge during the day and night, including Giraffe, Zebra and a Spotted Ginet!

They came close to catching food a few times but in the end, no luck. ...

... Gomo Private Game Reserve spending one night on route.Matthew took over the driving and later to our relief the road was quiet as suddenly he cursed at the car driving towards him on HIS side of the road - very close I might add - as at the last moment he realised he wasn't in Norway but Africa. Phew
On this road we encountered a herd of giraffes enjoying the heat of the ashpalt.
