We did the game ride for the second time. Enjoyed ir very much. The guide explained a lot and gave us enough time to watch the animals. We had a nice lunch and coffee in the restaurant.

We undertook the 3hr day safari. Great experience, wonderful guides and saw fantastic animals up close. I would highly recommend a visit if you are in the area. The restaurant food is decent but slow service.

We had a lovely game drive throughout the property and saw tons of game. Lions up close, rhino, hippos, giraffes and elephant. Was very comfortable and reasonable area to cover in the time allowed. I think far nicer than the bigger farms.
