By now you're probably looking at the reviews to see whether the cost paid for this trip is worth the money. Undoubtedly YES! The accommodation is first rate. This is no bushcraft shelter you'll be staying in! It rates with many high class hotels anywhere in the World. The food is really good, the staff are friendly and helpful and the surroundings are so amazing. There are two water holes, one outside the bungalows and another outside the dining room veranda. The drinks are not too expensive and you just sign them to your room and pay, (cash or card), at the end of your stay. The guides for our game drives were so experienced and the benefit of going with Woodlore is you get the same two highly rated guides for the whole week. You have two game drives per day, one first thing in the morning, (half six start, prompt!) and another at 4.30 in the afternoon. Each one lasts about three to four hours long. There is also a stop for coffee in the morning drive and one for 'Sundowners' on the evening one. The guides take you to some amazing high level stops where you can watch the sun go down over the distant mountains. The drive back under the stars is something that you'll never forget. There isn't much walking on the drives as the terrain isn't conducive to being on foot. You don't want to play hide and seek with many of the animals at Erindi! Being part of the menu is something you'll want to avoid! You'll see some amazing animals and be in no doubt you will see them! Being 20 foot, or less, from a lion eating their kill is something you'll never forget. You get lectures on some species of the animals in the park during the day, before the afternoon drive. As well as being taught the different tracks and animal signs by Ray Mears. Who must surely be one of, if not the most highly knowledgeable people on the planet about tracking, spotting and knowing the animals in the reserve. You'll learn so much and come away with so many special memories you'll not want the time here to come to an end. One thing. If your partner is a bit wary of coming along because they might think it's all about 'Bushcraft', it's not! This is about becoming more aware of the many different, and special species of animals that make up our planet. You'll also make some amazing friends and share some memories forever. So if you do have any doubts about this expedition. DON'T! Get it booked you won't regret it!
