In the Buffalo Bar, Makuwa-Kuwa Restaurant and pool deck, the guests enjoy great views and excellent service of the Zimbabwean staff renowned for their warmth.

In Kasane, Botswana, in the Chobe National Park, we'll be staying for 2 nights at the Cresta Mowana Lodge, situated on the banks of the Chobe River, where the Kwando, Linyanti and Chobe River systems form a mosaic of lakes, islands, channels and floodplains, renowned for its vast herds of elephant and buffalo.
