          On expedia it mentions this reserve is all inclusive but the only thing I see is free breakfast. what are typical charges for lunch and dinner on the property? I am looking to book for my honeymoon next Oct 2016. Is there a best time of year to come to spot animals such as elephants, giraffes and lions?

          Breakfast is included at about 9.30, after the game drive. At 3 there's a big afternoon tea with a lovely spread. Dinner at 7. Always snacks and free drinks on the drives. Food absolutely great!
