          My family is planning a trip to South Africa in December. We would like to spend a few nights at Mpila Camp in Imfolozi. How do we book a tent reservation? There are many safari and tour companies that will do it as part of a package, but I can't figure out which website is for the park/reserve itself (just to book the tent). And if we drive ourselves there (rental car), would we be able to also get on a guided wildlife drive or do other guided excursions, or are these only for the bigger package tours?
