          That's a difficult one, but I guess any child who has a love of animals who enjoy it! You need to consider the safety issue, plus there isn't much else to do for children there!

          We are booking a week with you in July 2017 through an online agency but notice on tripadvisor that you have not yet released avaibability and prices for that week yet. I am worried about being scammed

          This is a reputable lodge - it's small enough to cater for later bookings but probably too small to book a year in advance. I'd try and book again in 6 - 8 months time
