Guest reviews Walkers Plains Camp

This is an experience. The Big 5 in one and a half days. We saw Leopard (3 times), Lion (many, some fresh on a buffalo kill), Buffalo, Rhino and several elephant, one of whom came to the camp to drink from the pond right on the fence. An exquisite room, with indoor and outdoor shower, fully stocked bar and your own private splash pool.
