Note: The age limit for children on this safari is three and above.
It is offered to a minimum of 2 adults with a child, with a maximum of a total of 6 guests in the vehicle (but for a bigger single group we can use a bigger vehicle). Breakfast (full English), light lunch and 3-course dinner, as well as snacks and bottled mineral water in transit and on game drives/activities are all included.
We then have the flexibility during those days to go on various game drives in the area, which can be adapted according to the children’s needs on the safari, to join in special activities (like a bush picnic at one of the viewing sites or watch game at a waterhole etc) but this is on request.
