Now here was a natural, with an uncanny ability to smell out the best hunting areas and track down the biggest elephants in the Rift Valley. Harry always tried to steer well clear of areas frequented by this formidable hunter, as the pickings there would be slim.

The lodge was packed with travelers from near and far enjoying our riverside pool, walking through Emily’s grounds and paddling on her river.

Here’s a glimpse into summer 2016!
