Rubbens, as much as a love the bush, I would hesitate to take a child under a certain age.

I would rather suggest that you look at other options.

It really is, in my mind, about their vulnerability.

Tx for your replies. I don't think there is much difference between a girl who is 11 years and 6 months and a 12 year old girl.

But indeed, there has to be a line and if that line is not strictly checked, it would be better not to set any limits.

We'll do a night drive instead.

Tx

Could someone clarify exactly what is needed for a "fitness certificate"? We would like to do the river walk in Olifants (and perhaps some morning walks from other camps) and both SO and I are over 65. Someone said a note from a doctor is needed. What should the note say? Fit enough to walk 10k? Fit enough to ? Fitness level compared to most people our age? My doctor in California would have no clue what sort of fitness level would be needed for such walks.

We did the bike ride a few years back and had no trouble with that. :D

I think its more of a case of any medical conditions that may exist that is the main concern, heart problems etc that might not be conducive to walking.
The guides will mostly tailor the walk according to the guests fitness and age levels.

Thanks Elsa. So, all we need is a note that says we do not have any medical conditions that would prevent us from doing a walk?

Will do.

It is really the trail walks where they can be stricter. Age really is relative.

I hope that you enjoy the walk. I find them so special.
