          Beyond excited about staying at Ecca Lodge next month. I have a camera with 200mm zoom, is this large enough to take some good pix of the animals - or do I need bigger lens? Thanks.

          Hi there, Kwandwe Ecco Lodge! Tania, in JoBerg, has just arranged for our group of nine family members to stay with you in Feb/, 2015. Included in our party are 2 rather senior citizens (a grandma and a grandpa, ages 77 and 74). Is it possible to request one of our rooms to be located close to the main lodge for grandma and grandpa? Grandpa, in particular, has some difficulty with walking distances on uneven terrain. He uses a cane. The remaining 6 are probably more interested in the vista and wildlife around them, and would wish for those elements, wherever they are most abundant. Many thanks for your consideration. We are very excited about this upcoming adventure with you. Sincerely, The Hirsh family
