    Very good experience just a pity we did not see all the big five. The highlight was seeing a live kill by a cheetah right in front of us during the game drive. The food in the bush was also very nice and freshly prepared.

    We’re just back so there early November. Yes a fleece or warmer coat would be a good idea. They do have blankets and jackets you can use though if needs be.

    You should not need them. We had extra layers but that was end Oct and temps were increasing daily. If it gets chilly they supply ponchos.
