          We are looking at various game lodges around this area. Many seem to be inclusive of 2 game drives a day. Are Pumba's game drives inclusive?

          Yes our game drives were included as well. There was an additional night time drive which you could book if you wanted but our booking included 2 game drives a day.

          We are going over for 3 nights In late June, really looking forward to it. As it may not be particularly warm enough to be soaking up the sun in between game drives I was wondering what else can you do? Is there a small town close by we can go to? I have read about the spa, not my partners thing but I may well have a treatment or two!
