Dear claudia b, We're really glad to hear that you consider us "Very Pet Friendly", and that you enjoyed bringing your two fur babies to stay with you in your Safari Tent. I'm really truly sorry that the kayaks are no longer available - we are trying to find a solution to rising costs of licensing, insurance etc and will be offering these and more as soon as we can! Best regards, Liz

We stayed at in the safari tent and absolutely loved it. The staff are incredible and went over and above to accommodate for our family that consists of 2 and 4 year old. The tent has a fan and there was a decent breeze coming through from the lake. We will definitely stay again

Hi Joyce, Yes we do charge a one off $30 fee to all bookings. I apologise if it seems odd but the problem is a one night stay in winter (when our rates can be as low as $95 per night) booked via a 3rd party site is unsustainable without the fee. Also, as Phil notes this is now quite standard. Hope you understand. Best regards, Liz
