  • Rob, many thanks for organising a great trip for us. Pretty much everything worked like clockwork. Mashatu tented camp was very good. Excellently run with fantastic staff, very professional and friendly, food top notch too. Game viewing was still good despite the grass being high. We did see wild dogs on our first day. Leopards usually allude us too but our excellent guide Richard found 2 in three days for us. We loved the tents, large comfortable and well appointed with great bathrooms but our only criticism of the whole camp would be that there was no view / aspect. You were right about Tswalu, it was absolutely fabulous! Again guides can make or break the experience and we had an excellent guide Warren Pearson. Everything about Tswalu was top notch and you have now spoilt us for the future. Sadly no pangolin or aardvark but got very close to Hartmann’s zebra, and the first brown hyena I have seen. Meerkats were fascinating and I could have sat with them all day. Many thanks again Rob, just loved it!
