    I've noticed on the webpage that the game drives are in the greater kruger area. Does this mean they're not in the Balule Nature reserve itself or is this actually part of the 'Greater Kruger area'. Is the boat trip on elephant's river still included in the 3-day package. Didn't see it on the site...
