This tour is perfect to see a lot in a short time. The places that are visited are really beautiful and our nice guide gave us interesting information about everyone. The backpacker accommodations were great and the game lodge just amazing. This was an extra that you can upgrade when booking and is also highly recommended. The package includes the two safaris in the reserve and the delicious meals. If you don't do this, you will sleep in a somewhat distant hostel and you cannot participate in the safaris. This was not clear to me due to the description, which is why I would like to mention it again.
