Had outstanding experience hard to fault anything. Our safari ranger, Victor, always tried to provide the best experience. On the go all the time but but still felt relaxed. Great value for money with very good animal encounters.

Hi Molly2653 - thanks for your question. Normally game drives are grouped with other guests depending on the size of the party they are travelling with. We try to keep the vehicle to between 6 and 8 guests.
