    Hi, If I book through Agoda, will the price include game drives? It does not specify when I move on to book the accommodation via Agoda and I would not want to book if game drives were not included due to the price point. Thanks, Ellie

    Response from KambakuOwners | Property representative |
    Hi Ellie, Yes indeed all your game drives will be included as well as meals, local beers, soft drinks, tea/coffee etc. Anything further please don't hesitate to ask. All the best, Bryce
