the true experience of a lifetime
I don't know where to begin with the thanks we want to express for your enabling us to visit Earth Lodge for three nights following the ASTA International Destination Expo in Sun City. Not only was the lodge stunningly beautiful and so perfect for its environment, but the service, food, courtesty, everything were extraordinary at every level and from everyone. Hugo du Toit was standing in for Mr. Schoeman while we were there and he was amazingly everywhere overseeing every aspect of the service.
My wife, Dina and I have travelled all over the world and both of us independently came to the conclusion that it simply doesn't get any better than this. The true experience of a lifetime. The game drives were beyond description and, from what I have heard from colleagues who had great experiences elsewhere, Sabi Sabi outperformed everyone. We saw more major animals in the first afternoon than some people saw elsewhere in days. Cameron and Patrick were simply remarkable. Cameron was as excited as we were to see the animals, an infectious enthusiasm, not to mention astonishing knowledge, that enhanced every minute of the drives.
When Dina and I have had a bit more rest and caught up with work, we hope to produce an article for publication featuring Sabi Sabi. Hugo arranged a tour of the other three lodges, so we have pictures and details about all of them. Meanwhile, I am working through more than a thousand shots I took in just three days.
Thank you again for making this incredible experience possible.
