          Sorry. We went in October so can't really say. However, the game reserve is not huge and therefore do suspect that game wardens will be able to find the animals.

          Correct. Our evening safari started at 5pm, followed by dinner and then the morning safari started around 7am followed by breakfast and check out afterwards.
