Thank You for making our honeymoon Settlers Drift
We chose to stay at Settler’s Drift as part of our honeymoon, and we were treated like King and Queen from start to finish - it was amazing! Each suite was huge, monkeys were outside the glass-walled shower. The safaris morning and evening were incredible,each time we saw something new or rare but our safari ranger knew where to find them and each of our requests to see a certain creature was fulfilled within the 3 days we were there. Greeted back after each safari with a hot towel and a drink, and having the best trucks which held 6 people maximum complete with blankets and drinks was incredible and felt very exclusive. We even were treated as a surprise to a private meal in a private room one evening, and the other nights were spent with others and our ranger Louis who was great company and had amazing knowledge for someone of his age. The food and drink was amazing, and the service second to none. We’d recommend this to everyone, it was One of the best experiences of our lives!
