Discounted game drives appealed to us but when at Talamati, on requesting these, we were told it did not apply to bushcamps! :slap:
With little internet reception, we couldn't check this, and accepted that they would know if they were offering them, and thus did not request one at Biyamiti bushcamp either! :rtm:
