if you go--request Manie as your ranger. he's excellent and made the trip. we loved the accomodations and the scenery. being an active colorado couple, we got bored easlity as you are not supposed to run on the reserve (they do have 4/5 of the big 5) and so there were times in which we had nothing to do, no workout room, and we're not the relaxing type of vacationers. however, we did have an excellent trip and enjoyed every minute of it. if you're looking for lions though, do take some extra cash and do a day trip from the reserve as there are no lions there. we rented our own car and drove from richard's bay. it was an easy drive and one i'd recommend to other people.
