You will see all the wild life. Your daily game drives take you to other watering holes. Even though the watering hole at Arathusa is dry there is a constant caravan of animals that walk though. You won’t be disappointed.

Rooms are open plan, but the toilet is in it's own little room. Game drives had a maximum of 9 people per truck - everyone could see well. Scads of animals!
