GAME DRIVE INCLUDES:
No children under the age of 4 years are allowed on the Game drives.
We offer morning and afternoon game drives which will allow you to get close to Africa’s wildlife in an open vehicle with a trained guide. Game drives can be arranged on request, with 24 hours notice.
If it rains before check in or during your stay you will be given the option to go on a Game Drive, however, we can often only travel on the Main roads depending on the amount of rain we had. Most off the reserve have cotton soil and properties will be closed to minimize damage to the roads.
If it starts raining during your Game Drive, the Game Drive will unfortunately be cut short for the safety of our guests. Full payment for a Game Drive will still apply as weather conditions are out of our control.
Important: we cannot guarantee any specific sightings and you may not see all the animals you wanted to see, it’s a Safari, wild and uncontrolled, which makes it exciting. Embrace what you do see and most of all enjoy every moment.
No self-drives are allowed in the Reserve.
Please note: Parents must be advised that game drives are 2h30 to 3 hours long and it will be appreciated if children are supervised to consider the other guests on the game drive. We have the Big 5 and it is imperative that noise levels be kept to the minimum for safety reasons.
We regret: No children under the age of 4 years
