You will also discover that certain lodges adopt age restrictions, counting for inclusion or exclusion of participation on game drives, in game walks and various available activities offered, for safety reasons as well as the sake of the guests enjoyment! There is STILL the option of booking certain lodges or family bush houses exclusively, these spaces are private and separate to the main public guest areas to fulfill requirements where families are looking for a unique bush experience.
