We welcome children on our safaris and will endeavour to include them on our open vehicle game drives as far as possible. We do however reserve the right not to take children under 12 years of age on an open vehicles game drive with other guests. This is entirely up to the guide's discretion. In such cases, we will conduct a special bush bumble game drive for the younger children after the normal morning game drive and/or before the afternoon game drive. We do not offer baby sitting facilities and thus one of the parents will have to look after the children.
Private game drives can be arranged in advance and at an additional charge, to allow for more flexibility when traveling with small children.
Packages making use of Private Lodges, may have varying policies, as some lodges do not allow children under 12 at all, while others not only welcome them, but also offer special children's activities. Please enquire prior to making your reservation.

Departure and Return Times

On our return, we plan on being back in Johannesburg between 17h00 and 18h00. Again, we may have multiple drop-off points and cannot under any circumstances guarantee our time of return. Guests flying out on the day the safari returns to Johannesburg are reminded not to book any flight departing before 19h00 (domestic) and 20h00 (international). We strongly recommend that guests stay over in Johannesburg on the day that their safari returns to Johannesburg and can assist with any such arrangements.
