We have SO enjoyed our 2-day visit to MFUWE, and find it difficult to thank you and your outstandingly good staff enough for looking after us all so well. Arriving, perhaps hot and tired, and being handed, immediately, glasses of cold orange juice is a brilliant move. Everything organized to give us pleasure. The drives were just amazing - your very experienced drivers, well aware of what was on the move, and where, which is why we met up with 9 lions! The spotter introduced us to leopard! What a thrill!
Have to mention that, travelling with us, the refreshment and drinks were super - always! The meals were a pleasure. Starting with breakfast at 5.3O a.m. was something! - everything ready and piping hot - off we went, well fed and warm! It didn't seem to matter at what time we rolled in, after a late drive - dinner was waiting for us! And tea was available at any time! The chalets were very well cared for - always spotless.
