    Its about 7 mins drive from our property down to the crater floor. We do have game drive vehicles at our property so you simply need to book in advance or through your travel agent or tour operator

    There is one tent that has all night power. We used it because my wife also uses Cpap . You MUST request it with your reservation.

    A "bush TV" is the nightly open air fire where you will gather before and/or after dinner!! Email Remote Recreation for any African safari needs.
