Please wait...

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 8 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.

Are there ablution facilities at the lodge?
Yes, communal ablution facilities can be found on all lodge. Most of them are very basic and hot water is few and far between.

We make use of reconstructed 4×4 safari vehicles (i.e. Toyota Landcruisers), that have been designed to conquer the ever demanding road conditions in East Africa. All vehicles have pop-up roofs that can be opened during game drives and a window seat is guaranteed for each guest.
