The exclusive use of a safari vehicle, as well as a dedicated ranger and tracker team, mean that game drives can be tailored for the shorter attention span of younger children, leaving and coming back to the lodge at any time. The private chef is available to prepare meals at any time, catering for early bedtimes and preparing special food for fussy eaters on request. Childminders are available to look after younger children.
