Private Guiding

Private Guiding is available at a surcharge, and by prior arrangement for Game Drives and Fishing. However, we only recommend this for those who do not wish to share their safari activities with others, or for those who have specific requirements that would make sharing with others difficult. The majority of our guests do not book privately guided activities and will be flexible, and happy to share with others. Our managers always go out of their way to ensure that each guest’s requirements are personally attended to, and that like-minded guests and interests are matched to the best of their ability.
