A simply brilliant family experience.
A truly unique experience. Every aspect of the stay was first class. The two-day program was full of amazing encounters. The guides were very knowledgeable and gave very detailed explanations about the animals and the program at the wildlife lodge. The food was sensational and our whole family (parents and daughters age 9 and 11) were all well catered for. We will certainly be back.

This was an absolutely incredible experience. Very much unique and one of a kind adventure. The WOW tour was one of the best tours we have done and would highly recommend it. The accommodation was wonderful with a great room and the view of Hummer the giraffe was fantastic for us and the children. The food was so very well done and they took into account all allergies and food intolerances. Would come back again in a heart beat!
