    Hi, I am planning for a trip during May/ June. Can you please advise if it's a good time for sighting animals? or is it advisable to go during the summers?

    Sorry. We went in October so can't really say. However, the game reserve is not huge and therefore do suspect that game wardens will be able to find the animals.

    Correct. Our evening safari started at 5pm, followed by dinner and then the morning safari started around 7am followed by breakfast and check out afterwards.

    We are a family with two younger children, 5 and 6 years old. Can they follow us on the game drive? Is it any age limit on the game drive?
