          Hi I just wondered if the wilderness walks were at the same time as the drives? Would it be possible to go on a morning drive, then a walk, followed by an evening drive? Thanks John

          You do not need to bring plug adapters or voltage regulators to Jock Safari Lodge. They are all provided for you.
