    Hi, We will like to stay a couple of day in the nkomazi game reserve. What is the risk of malaria around this area. Because we will not take any medication for prevention.

    On expedia it mentions this reserve is all inclusive but the only thing I see is free breakfast. what are typical charges for lunch and dinner on the property? I am looking to book for my honeymoon next Oct 2016. Is there a best time of year to come to spot animals such as elephants, giraffes and lions?

    Breakfast is included at about 9.30, after the game drive. At 3 there's a big afternoon tea with a lovely spread. Dinner at 7. Always snacks and free drinks on the drives. Food absolutely great!
