We regret no children under the age of 6 unless the entire camp has been booked by the same group / family, in this case children under 6 are not allowed on game drives. At all times parents are responsible for their children of 6 years or older and so have adult supervision day and night therefore not disturbing the calm or rest of other guests at the lodge and while on safari. Unfortunately, if these rules are not adhered to for general peace and safety of all, we reserve the right to terminate the stay of the infringing party with immediate effect, who will be refunded the balance of their booking “pro rata”.
Children (Ages 6 up to 12 years) sharing with Adult(s) is 75% of Adult Sharing Rate.
TARIFFS ARE SUBJECT TO ALTERATION WITHOUT PRIOR NOTICE.

All additional activities are subject to availability and can be booked either before or during a stay at Imagine Africa Luxury Tented Camp.

No additional activities (unless stipulated) are mandatory or included in the rate. Should an additional activity / day tour/ transfer be booked / pre-arranged and then cancelled 24 hours or less before the day of the “event” 100% cancellation fee applies.
Due to the fact that there are potentially dangerous mammals in the reserve e.g. lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, buffalo, hippo and hyena, we are not allowed to offer walks with any person under the age of 16 years.
