    We loved being in the bush, the accommodation and staff were friendly and efficient and we had a great experience and loved the visits from the buck and warthogs in the morning and afternoon. It is also wonderful for kids. We will definitely be back.

    I'm afraid that I cannot answer your question, but there might be the information you are looking for on their website. Failing that, you could e-mail them. I got lots of information that way. Good luck!
