Reviewed 7 October 2016 via mobile

We spent 2 nights with my family (5 and 7 year old kids). Place is safe with fences so you can be free to move in the lodge. Game drives are easy for kids and the park is big enough. We saw lions, cheetahs, rhinos, giraffes, etc. service was slow/ not that good. But ok option for kids.
