                          The only problem was the gravel road as we had private small cars, It was not fun driving at night other than that we were welcomed very well and we enjoyed our stay very relaxed and refreshing.

                          We loved the Game Drive as well as the peace and tranquility of being in the bush.

                          We had a wonderful stay at African Spirit. Our guide Jesse went out of his way to show us a cheetah and her cubs and the staff were very hospitable. The house we stayed in was great - spacious and well equipped especially with the braai boma, weber, potjie etc for outdoor cooking - perfect! Thanks
