We book a sundowner game drive with lunch. It was really great value for money for a family. As we did not want to stay in the game reserve for the whole stay. This arrangement suited us perfectly.

3 hours of fantastic scenery and animal-viewing. See all the animals close and enjoy an excellent guide for interesting information. Excellent restaurant for lunch after safari or spa treatment at the hotel

Lions, elephants, rhino's and buffalo make up 4 of the big 5, and your room will have roaming wildebeest and impala to keep you... More
