          Hello, I would like to know how big the swimming pool is. Is it more of a dip pool, more a shallow wading pool or a medium sized pool you could have a good swim in? Thanks for any feedback.

          Good morning. The pool is more the kind that you can cool off in rather than actually swim in it. You won't do too many strokes before you reach the other side.

          Hi everyone, we're going to visit the Springbok Lodge in July. I just made the reservation and was asked to fill in a questionnaire. One question was how much we are planning on spending on extras. Unfortunately I couldn't find any information about the prices of both the non-alcoholic and alcoholic drinks. Can anyone tell me what they charge for soft drinks (juice, soda and water) and maybe even for a beer or a glas of wine? I appreciate your help. Regards Ina
