Sundowners and snacks are served on the evening game drives usually at a memorable vantage point as atop a mountain ridge where you can stand and stare at the majestic beauty around you. Hot beverages and snacks will warm you up on the early morning drives.
Little travellers can enjoy the swimming pool and the safe, secluded playground with its protective elephant fence, or explore the variety the bush has to offer during a Kiddies bush walk.
