The place is just lovely, perfect view from the pool area. We had the chance to have our meals with a view of elephants, buffalos, among others from there. Staff was just amazing! Would definitely come back again and recommend the place!

Hi Molly2653 - thanks for your question. Normally game drives are grouped with other guests depending on the size of the party they are travelling with. We try to keep the vehicle to between 6 and 8 guests.
