We love tented camps and Bomani lived up to expectations. Nothing better than lying tucked up with your hot water bottle listening to Elephants, antelope or hippo going about their nightly business. Sitting around the fire each night sharing excited recollections of the day's adventures with other visitors. The elephant lookout was brilliant, what a wonderful memorial to have ,...
