    Friendliest, knowledgeable staff where you feel pampered throughout your entire stay. Game rides are awesome. I would recommend it to anybody. It was definitely worth the long trip from California and it was the highlight of our South African vacation.

    To be fair I never saw anybody smoking whist we were there but there were open log pits in use at night to throw your tabs - I didn't see any ashtrays either perhaps its a no go - perhaps contact them directly for advice?
