    Everything was nice. Beautiful environment and treehouse. The activities in the morning and afternoon are nicely combined with relaxation. Nice meals together with other guests. Once you are in the reserve follow the signs, not your GPS! :)More

    Hi Keith, The game viewers do get very close to the wildlife. Depending on the sighting, they do sometimes get within 5-15m of the animals. But on average I would say within 10m to 50m of the wildlife. Regards Brett
