Excellent place, Excellent staff

We celebrated the bush wedding of a good friend in Bayala Private Safari Lodge and Camp. It was one of the top five weddings, that I have been invited to. 🙂 Everything was just perfect. The ceremony was hold in the middle of the bush, with an amazing sunset and just incredible landscape. After the ceremony the Bayala staff took us back to the lodge, where we continued to party in a big tend with good music, good food, awesome atmosphere and awesome people.:)
Two times we also did the game drive and in one day we saw all the big African 5. Our driver Junior was so motivated, to show us as much as possible. This was one of the experiences that I will never forget and I will always remember with a big smile on my face.:)
