Great way to spend a hot African evening. We had such a good waitor, friendly and the service was overall very good. The food was also excellent. Would love to get back here at some point.

If you are driving with your own truck you just need to show up in the gate. If you want to get a guided tour I would recommend driving. Enjoy!
