This is a private tour and hence there won’t be any other guests joining the safari except for those in your party. It will just be you, your guide and the cook. Our vehicles can take a maximum of 7 people and should your group be bigger than that, more than one vehicle will be used.

There is no set age limit, however, we discourage parents with children under the age of 5 to join such a safari due to the lengthy drives and the fact that nights are spent on unfenced campsites. If parents are nevertheless convinced that their child / children are unfazed by the long driving distances and the travel time that goes with it, children are welcome to join the safari. But please keep in mind that the responsibility for each child lies with you as a parent at all times.

Nights are spent on basic campsites inside the national parks or on the outskirts thereof. Clients are provided with spacious two-man dome tents (2.1 x 2.1 m) that are equipped with mosquito nets and comfortable 5 cm thick sleeping mats.

Yes, communal ablution facilities can be found on all campsites. Most of them are very basic and hot water is few and far between.
