    Good morning , I have booked to stay at the River Lodge following several recommendations from both family and friends. Me and my son are booked for 11th to 14th August. Do I need to book for safari tours ( jeep or 4x4 or part of group tour ) , when I get there or is it part of the service that is provided with the stay?
