Our group of eight--four adults and four teenagers--stayed three nights and loved every minute of it! Everything was incredible. The GFRL staff was so friendly and accommodating--they went out of their way to make us comfortable, including making sandwiches for a teenaged boy after the kitchen had closed for the night and sending us with boxed lunches for our trip to the airport on the way out. Oza delighted our friend by calling him by his nickname instead of his actual first name. Our guide Nico and tracker Ivan were great--we couldn't believe all the animals we saw and how close we were able to get to them. Nico and Ivan were informative and fun to be around all day. Megan set up a fabulous picnic for us one day. The rooms were gorgeous and comfortable, with heated bathroom floors and comfortable beds and armchairs. The linens, bathrobes and towels were soft and luxurious. The meals were delicious and there were choices for even our picky eaters. The staff noticed what we liked and made sure we had it. The limit on the number of guests makes this a truly unique and wonderful place.
