What and experience, a definite place to visit again, the guide knew everything that what asked of her, we interacted with the animals, something we have never done before. I wouldn't think twice about going there again. The prices were also reasonable.

we did the lion and wild dog safari drive, it was wonderful. Our guise Dusty was very knowledgeable and friendly. It is a nice setting and whats even more nice is that kids under 12 are free. Nice family outing!
