          Very Good and comfortable accommodation with free WIFI. Breakfast and lunch were good and the dinner menu tended to reflect the location. We saw a variety of animals and birds on the game drives. Service everywhere was very good.

          Hi, What is included as far as game drives and bush walks? Size of traverse Area? Is the resort fenced? Do you expect to have water source for animals at the lodge in May? How would we drive to Letaba camp from there and how long would it take approximately? I understand this would be a guesstimate! Do we have to go around? (I assume) Thanks, Karen Thanks
